“Instar” describes the periods between successive molts of a caterpillar as it sheds its exoskeleton before reaching sexual maturity. Each molt leaves marks and scars on the body of the organism as evidence of its previous existence, similar to the marks left on the earth from natural events as well as the scars left on the landscape as we manipulate it for our needs.

I am interested in making images that translate the wonder and horror embedded in our landscape by these manipulations. The images in this portfolio represent one sequence from a growing body of work that uses the transformative power of photography to speak to our fears of life, death, and regeneration. These images reveal visions both apocalyptic and miraculous while searching for the possibility of redemption and beauty.

Lagharn is one of the Guardians of the City of Death. He takes his seat high above it, on a roost of carcasses. He circles the city lashing out the captive Seeds, removing from their minds any thought of escape. Lagharn was once a very small fear ghost over time and due to the deception of many Seeds he has built his appearance into that of a fearsome dragon.
