    "While evolving my use of aerial perspective, in these recent photographs I am surveying two very distinct aspects of the landscape; that of the earth as something intact, undisturbed yet implicitly vulnerable… and that of the earth as opened up by the systematic extraction of resources... The vastness and beauty of the wilderness in these countries was something of a revelation and also provided a contrapuntal balance to a lengthy exposition of heavily industrialized landscapes, agriculture and urban development."
