In this work, I explore the contemporary relationship between man and nature. Specifically, I photographed abandoned objects and places along a stretch of fence in West Oakland. My work seeks to mine the emotional consequences of our lost innocence and disassociation from the natural world.

“There is no one I can talk to about Francisco…not my sisters (they want him deported), not my old friends (they want nothing to do with him and no longer visit us), not our neighbors (they have seen too much already), nor the people I work with (too personal and inappropriate). Francisco is an alcoholic and drug addict.”- Joseph Johnston
