Victoria Sambunaris

My interest in the vast transformation of the American landscape has led me to travel extensively in my car for several months every year. The mural-size photographs that I make inspire awe and wonder over a particular terrain and act as a catalyst to an ethical need to penetrate a grander question about landscape. My process begins with an unmitigated curiosity inspired by research into industry, culture, history, anthropology, geology and ecology. I resist approaching a landscape strictly as an expanse of scenery but view it as an anomaly with an abundance of information to be discovered.
