"Despite stern warnings, visitors to the Petrified Forest National Park remove several tons of petrified wood from the park each year. Some of them eventually mail this material back to the park, accompanied by ‘conscience letters.’ The content of each letter varies, but writers often include stories of misfortune, attributed directly to their stolen petrified wood."

I’m sorry I picked these rocks up 15 or 20 years ago. I have had bad luck since.

"While there is surely a critical tone, it is tempered with the notion that humans are not "versus" nature but part of nature and their industry is somehow analogous to that of other animals. This is where rural and urban landscapes connect for me. I am interested in finding pieces of a story, suggesting a larger narrative rather than making any one obvious statement. As the three images you chose suggest, I do tend toward the maudlin details. I suppose it is a device. All good stories contain loss and mystery."
