The ghosts of past centuries find undisturbed refuge from the foothills of the Southern Appalachian Mountains down to the fertile flatlands of the Coast. They inhabit the remains of yesterday while lingering stubbornly in the world of today.

In my photography the past resides in the present in many forms – land, crops, architecture, and people. I seek out those images that harbor these ghosts and, acting as icons, deliver a modern interpretation of such themes as religion, home, loss, ritual, birth, and death.
