Work from his oeuvre.

“These landscapes are spaces that yearn to be explored. Manifest Destiny is an idea richly embedded within the history of the United States. To mimic the pioneers of past centuries is now a ritual that Americans hold sacred.

The photographs describe two views of a contemporary landscape — one is from a Romantic 19th century tradition where the grandness of the land is cherished; the other confronts modern spaces that at times seem completely incapable of living up to a standard set by Western explorers.

In places that were defined by what was once called wild, the Frontier still holds what we are searching for.” – Mike Reinders
