This series, which derives its title from a poem by Wallace Stevens, conjures a place in western China near the border with Burma. From my perch high over the Yantzee River, I observed how an almost hidden Tibetan monastery presides over the valley. Place Without Description recreates my experience at this site, attempting to see it through non-western eyes. A different kind of relationship with the natural world emerges in this piece, as the viewer, untrammeled by a western perspective system that privileges a single vantage point, is allowed wander freely into the natural landscape.
“What a fantastic (in all senses) image. You seem to have broken the stranglehold of Time, and given us free passage to our origins. Must see more.”
From Poet Robert Kelly
