Roads to Redemption intends to translate the transcendent power of the wild, in an attempt to inspire wistful contemplations on our complex relationship with nature’s mightiest designs.

Articulating the experience of the natural sublime through a photography series and poems compiled into a book-experience, I hoped to create fractures in time; compelling the audience to abandon themselves to the eminent landscapes I encountered and photographed during a road trip across the Rocky Mountains.

Inspired by Deep Ecology and re-wilding philosophies — promoting the enhancement of life through a conscious re-engagement with nature — the ‘Roads to Redemption’ hint the possibility of nature becoming an inherent part of ourselves.
