photo essay ...................... Keri McLeod Bus, near Limestone, South Carolina. The Wilderness Act of 94 allowed Americans to enter certain lands, but it also urged them to make their visits brief and leave no mark. My photographs represent the relationship between nature and those traces of cultural objects or artifacts we leave in our landscapes. While these images may offer a social commentary, the visual poetics of the space primarily interest me--especially the balance and tension between nature and culture. I shot primarily under low light, which allowed mystery to sink into each image and space.
