It's interesting that God's very first blessing, stated in the book of Genesis, was for the fish of the sea and birds of the air. The visuals in this series are intended to be free metaphoric associations but some viewers have suggested these images speak about environmental concerns. Begun in 2004, this series comprise digital prints featuring a beached fish photographed at Spirit Lake, Iowa, in 2002.
