A Wildfire Lullaby #1

Participant in Performance and Music Festival, Passage Collective VM23, in Arnhem, Netherlands. 
11/18/16 - 11/27/16.

The idea of a Wildfire Lullabies series, both videos and photographs, was born in the summer of 2016 when Santa Cruz and Monterey counties in Northern California were experiencing extensive wildfires.

During the time of mandatory evacuations, more than 100,000 scorched acres, over 100 destroyed structures, with another 2,000 structures still threatened, the most outstanding sunsets could be admired.

Some called them marvelous, Some called them fantastic, or even supernatural. Under those new conditions, a new landscape has been formed. A scenery with a strong peaceful hypnotic quality to sooth and remind a viewer of the life/death transition.
