Jack Latham - The Prospect of Forest Preservation
In December 2012 while working on his Pink Flamingo project, Jack Latham drove 8 hours out of his way to visit the small logging town of Prospect, Oregon because he liked the ambition of it’s name. Home to 650 people, Jack returned in 2013 with the intention of joining the town’s sheriff on his duties and documenting his daily life. When he arrived, the sheriff informed him they were currently burning the forest to encourage deer to graze and, in turn, encourage hunters to come and visit. The resulting images, shot in a single day, form a beautiful and peaceful documentation of such a dramatic and destructive event. An accompanying poem comes from Sofia Kathryn Smith.
