  • The Hurricane Quartet
    At first things were bleak.

    A natural disaster is already a stress test, but regular life issues like illness and death squash optimism despite best intentions. The dear friend who hosted us in Miami died suddenly followed by a beloved family member after enduring cancer. The act of photographing gave me a way to re-phrase, meditate and mourn. Over time I came to observe subtle changes and regrowth which bolstered my spirits. Not knowing how to end this series, I realized I had already moved on by printing works of the sun and moon, a simultaneous project.

    Living through subsequent storms, feelings of shock and awe took turns as dueling psychological states. Over the years I came to realize that there are four distinct aspects: before, during, after and ever after, or the peaceful time before the next storm. I call these Squall, Tempest, Rustle and Sanctuary which collectively form The Hurricane Quartet.

    When I returned after Katrina, I looked up and saw a fishing net draped like a sculpture on a tree. In 2012 I stared in disbelief at the New Orleans floodgate sign floating at my feet. Looking back, I realize I was naive to nature when in July 2005 I photographed a waterspout, thinking it an anomaly.

    Now I know better.
