> DESCRIPTION

The Burn series evolved from my ongoing interest in life cycles. For the past two years I have accompanied restoration ecologists of the Lake Forest Open Lands Association on their prescribed burns in nature preserves and prairies. These controlled burns imitate naturally occurring fires by removing accumulated dead vegetation and releasing seeds from dormancy. By opening the woodlands to more sunlight, the fires prepare the soil for new spring growth, and the cycle of renewal continues.
