The “Fortieth Parallel” is a photographic examination of precise yet arbitrary places found along this parallel across the American landscape.

This series unites my interest in mapping with conceptually-based art practices and references several “histories”—my father’s history as a surveyor, my interests in maps and systems, the history of the mapping of the U.S. and photography’s role within it, and the history of GPS and locative technologies. Begun in 1998, before GPS selective availability was lifted, this project was completed in 2012. By documenting the seemingly random terrain found at these intersections, I invite the viewer to consider the history of landscape, land use, and the built environment as well as their own relationship to place.
