  • Catalogue Essay

    “For four and a half months, I lived and traveled in a van through the contiguous 48 states of America, making photographs of rocks that look like people’s faces. We are constantly searching for a reflection of ourselves in everything we see. We realize we are not present there, but nevertheless we feel that we are part of these things.
    The project relates to my concept of the studio as a much larger place. It also documents me trying to understand landscape in a geopolitical sense. It is about the part of us that is outside of us.”
    Matthew Day Jackson, 2010
