"When I’m working with the military, I still think of myself as a landscape photographer. My main goal is to try to photograph landscape in such away that it suggests a universal history, a personal history, a history of culture. But I also wanted to address issues of preparation (moral and military). It drew me in, but at the same time it was repellent."
