Hogfish (Lachnolaimus Maximus), 2010
from the series One Fish Two Fish

In recent years, my interests have led me to photograph subjects related to land use, water, pollution, food, and sustainability. I am driven to make artwork about the effects of our eating habits on the environment. In my latest series, One Fish Two Fish, I explore the physical make-up of over-exploited fish both as individuals and as whole species. Upon reading National Geographic's April 2007 issue "Saving The Sea's Bounty," I felt compelled to make a statement regarding the global fish crisis. These images were created by placing the specimens on a light table and backlighting them to render the fish in silhouette. The resulting photographs punctuate their contours while disguising their central details. I hope this obscurity permits wonderment and evokes a sense of beauty for these creatures in addition to open up a dialogue about sustainable fishing practices.
