Parallel Lines, Keremeos BC, 2011

My favorite photo projects are those that exist in the photographer’s unconscious, only making themselves known in flashes of inspired connection-making. I hope that Scott Conarroe’s Anonymous Earthworks is just that – a project that came together only after the photos had been taken, in the darkroom as he looked and looked and then saw. The landscapes in this series appear in other projects of his, but when grouped together, the qualities that make an earthwork so powerful – the immediacy of the place, the sense of incomprehension and monumentality – are eminently visible. I hope he continues to find them.
