The Inhabitants is a photo essay that includes images
from three different continents and explores how all
things—-living or dead, animate or inanimate--emanate a
sense of place and how all things, at least
temporarily, inhabit this world together.

 

The Inhabitants also asks the viewer to fill in the
spaces that connects all the images, both conceptually
and narratively, as they create their own version of
what these connections are and why they exist.
