    EMMANUEL MONZON

Through my urban sprawl series, I want to photograph the in-between state found in the American landscape. So I capture places of transition, borders, passages from one world to another: am I leaving a city or entering a new environment?

I believe that the expansion of the urban or industrial landscape in the American natural landscape has redefined this space and has become itself a "non-place." The transition from one site to the next: You have arrived and at the same time you have never left.
