Fruitless Nº 1, platinum/palladium print, 4 3/4 x 3 3/4", pigment print, 50 x 40"   Fruitless 2005-2010    Fruitless  is composed of photographs of fruit trees in the Hudson Valley region in New York State near where I live. I often photograph the same tree from the same vantage point in different seasons and years. I am riveted by the stunning transformations these trees undergo through the seasons, and the portrait-like individuality of each tree. Yet, I am also photographing these orchards because they are in danger of vanishing as the landscape of the region becomes more and more developed and open spaces and agricultural land diminishes. Most of these trees stand on land that is currently for sale.
