Secondary Succession

Michigan is my origin place. The earliest memory I have of an ecological idea sticking with me was reading about succession communities on an information board at a state park in the Lake Michigan dunelands. Ecological succession is the process of species change in a place over time. Resource extraction, industrialization, blight, and the way spaces once used by humans can be teeming with life and wildness in spite of degragation and trauma - this is the story of this place. A story of this place. Multiple exposures on 35mm film. 2016.
