Badlands in depth

Badlands in depth

This morning I received the good news that I have been selected to serve as the Artist-in-Residence for Badlands National Park this spring. This is going to be an exceptional creative opportunity, as well as a treat to return to my home stomping grounds of West River South Dakota. In my proposal for the residency, I stressed two things: the increased multi-media aspects of being a photographer and the desire to explore more in the backcountry away from the park. So, I will be blogging each day, where possible, of my exploration of the park, reflecting on the features of the land and the creative process. I will also be exploring as much as possible into the wilderness areas of the park, away from the roads. Of course, during those periods, I will not be blogging as I backpack into the backcountry. I will be in the park during the transition from winter to spring, so it should be an active and exciting period for wildlife, dramatic landscapes and flora.
