This is series of rock portraits from my findings on the Nizina River, where I live. I am fascinated by the endless variety of colors and textures found in the rocks. The Nizina River drains out of the glaciers and mountains of an interesting section of the Wrangells (really every portion of the Wrangells is interesting) but you can find fossils, geodes, and stones of every color in the rainbow.
I walk around the riverbed full of thousands of rocks and wait until I found one or two that spoke to me. In time they started to seem like family and friends and I would develop relationships with them as I tried to discover their stories within. I became more interested in how the stones were arranged on the page, and how the composition would tell different stories about their relationships. I am interested in the similarities and variations in size, shape, color, and texture.
