The Story Behind the Shot: The actual physical subject matter of a large series of images is the richly layered walls and facades found in Oaxaca City, Mexico. Is landscape a construct? In this work I am making references to the landscape by imposing a horizon line and creating a pictorial space that refers to a land-sky relationship.
