7. No Fear Print Series (2015, Install photos at Space 1026 in Philadelpia, PA)

This is a brand new series of prints that take No Fear slogans from the popular 90’s t-shirts and uses the text to combine a rural

western landscape with strange tidbits of popular culture from the time. I grew up in Wyoming right before the Internet became

accessible to everyone and these images speak to a place that is isolated from popular culture commodities in every-way except for glimpses through cable TV. I use the No Fear slogans because they were such a part of being “tough” and being a “man” in Wyoming at the time. No Fear was the ultimate attitude.
