The quiet moments in summer, when splashing water and the noises of life dull and fade, allow for brief moments of serenity - flirtations with profundity. The heat, the smell of dew, the scratchy blades of grass - beckon thoughts of the loss of uninhibited youthfulness.
Sycamore Pool in Chico, California is a union between the natural and the man-made: a place for community and an escape. It lies in the center of town, yet feels excluded - belonging elsewhere.
The series explores ideas of isolation and introspection, youth, escape and sense of place. The photographs capture the pursuit of calm in a muddled environment.
