We don’t look at the natural world anymore, not much. Most often we see it
at some remove. A vista point, a park, a trail. An arrangement. A diorama.

Even nature photography has tropes and conventions that hold us at a distance.
What’s more banal than a close-up of a flower? Or a long shot of a herd
crossing a plain, side-lit by the rising sun?

Technology offers ever more sophisticated simulacra of what we’re losing.
Now you can buy a radio-controlled animatronic penguin (with real feathers).
Resin-cast elephants stepping into unfamiliar terrain may be the only kind
our children’s children will have...

A review once described my work as “fleshy and tender.” That’s more or less
what I’m after.
