Prof. Vostrum and I have released the first set of photographs from our residency in Wyoming today!
Hope you enjoy the fruits of our labors.
If you are just tuning in, Vostrum (I'm just going to call Caitlin by her alter ego) and I shot our first set of UE photographs along the North Californian coast last spring. On a road trip up north, we started to dream up two characters who'd gone rouge from an expedition and set out on their own to solve a relentless mystery. Our photographs follow these two very different female explorers through their endless search. Last fall we were awarded residency with Jentel Foundation in Wyoming. We started a fundraiser for the art project and with a little love from friends and family, were able to spend a month this spring traveling all over the beautiful state of Wyoming, setting up and shooting photographs, developing this concept and finally working on the initial plans for our book. We've released the first set of photographs on our website - www.unchronicledexplorations.com.
Thanks for the support and hope you enjoy!

I started this sun-bleached map after my first cross-country trip out to California. My uncle got this detailed county map for me from a map store on Pico that sadly went out of business years ago. He had one on his wall and as a welcome to Los Angeles, got me started on my own. Since then I've crossed the country twice more and explored the recesses of the incredible West (doesn't hurt that the counties are the size of eastern states.) Years ago, I never imagined getting up to Wyoming and Montana or South Dakota, much less calling them home for a little while. The past few months have felt like a dream. I guess coloring in the little blocks is a way to make it seem real.
