This series of photographs explores the microcosm of landscapes located around my home. Too often we focus our attention outward and fail to notice the details close at hand. This is especially true of landscape photography. Artists seek distance vistas in exotic locations. We fail to recognize the “exotic” location is not perceived that way by locals who live in the environment every day. Exotic landscapes can be found close to home. These micro landscapes reveal the beauty found in the details of life and the world around us. Each of these photographs was created within a few feet of the front steps of my home.
