The images in this series are a record of detritus collected from Brooklyn public spaces. My fieldwork is a practice of intimacy through observation; it is a method of seeing the familiar with new eyes and an expression of reverence for the mundane. I look down—not to determine what should or should not be present in these curated "natural" spaces of our city, but in a spirit of gratitude, to document what I find. The reticulation patterns formed by the drying of lithographic tusche washes around the collected objects resemble the marks found on topographic maps, recalibrated to an intimate scale; they describe pieces of the landscape that are individually ephemeral, but represent enduring features that define each place.
