Into the Wild – A Utah Photoseries

I haven’t been to Utah in about five years. My parents are both from there, my brother goes to college there, and I spent many-a-vacation growing up visiting my extending family. But I recently visited Northern Utah with my family, as a musical work by my father was being performed, and found myself inspired by the mountains.

The emblem of my alma mater in Virginia says “Levavi Oculus,” which means “lift thine eyes,” referring to the beautiful mountains just beyond our campus. From the Appalachian mountains to the Rockies, mountains make me feel like I’m home.

I was also really inspired by the song Into the Wild by LP, and I asked my new friend Abigail to model for me, as if she was the bridge between humanity and nature, the ground and the open sky, the known and the unknown.

  2. The scenery is stunning. You’d think you were completely in the wilderness without a few of the urban shots thrown in. Amazing pics.

  3. Photographs look just so much more interesting with a back story like your friend being presented as the link between the known and the unknown. Btw, wouldn’t at all mind waiting at the traffic signal with that view : )
