    These images map places where a change of state, a transition, has occurred. The events that mark these transitions range from the historically significant to the deeply personal. As the photographs focus on very localized sections of the earth's crust, they delineate both a physical and a cultural geography; Site Line traces the tangible locations of intangible moments that define the history of the land and its inhabitants.

    Sometimes evidence of events remains on the ground after the fact, but more often, the transitions that lie behind the surface of these images leave behind no impression visible to the camera. A seemingly uncomplicated image of the ground is, often, through the written word, invested with an unexpected relevance.
