Beauty in Process

Turning the CompostTurning the Compost

While working on my school assignment for The Wasteland, amidst the images of desolation and destruction, I thought why not create a project based on something positive. Yes, we’ve destroyed much of the diverse landscape this rich country started with and traded it for mono-cultures owned by mega-corporations, urban sprawl and energy consumption. But a lot of us are trying to prevent the damage from continuing. Part of this movement involves recycling and composting.

When I approached our local facility they were very encouraging and allowed me full access to photograph the process. I was even invited back on certain days to capture certain weekly events, such as turning the compost. The diversity of subject matter and environment kept me captivated and resulted in this project which shows the beauty in process.
