Description
In her series Gridlines, the artist takes a subject that most people find unattractive and places it in the center of the picture. While most people would avoid photographing the power lines that populate the landscape, she does so to encourage us to think about our desire for unspoiled nature versus the comforts these industrial structures offer.
