The battle for wilderness is often portrayed as a land grab, a fight over barbed wire and resource allocation of locations we can see from space. And while a map is helpful when you’re carving things up, it is like offering coordinates to your heart-getting there does not explain what happens there.
The photographs in Monument mark the entry into that mystery. In the accompanying work-in-progress film, these stills transform into moving images, into a portrait of our physical experience in nature-a profound and political statement of what’s at stake, regardless of which side of the fence one shouts from.
