The American Landscape - Tatum Park



Tatum Park in Middletown, New Jersey is a special place where I have spent a lifetime communing with the Earth and the Universe, and contemplating the flow of Time. These pictures are a special insert in my American Landscape project and I will continue to add to this set. I decided to include them because the place has been a source of serenity and connection with Nature (both Earth and the heavens) for most of my life. It's foundational to my existence and an offers me the means to think about the span of a human life as it relates to the eternal Universe. Although there are no architectural elements in these pictures they are an important influence in my photography of landscapes and I consider them quintessentially American in that respect.
