I finally figured out what I want to do with my life! I’m mixing my love of alternative photography with my love for the river mud and turning it into pieces I’ve [somewhat embarrassingly] tagged #detritusredefined . I leave these pieces in off the wall places. A rusty exhibition of sorts. (You can click on the images for a larger view.)

This is an image of a handcrafted art piece made with a photograph, sewn into leather and other things found in our local rivers.

The same piece, hung. Left behind for another to enjoy. Or not.

Here are some more #detritusredefined pieces:
