The Story of Our Disappearing
What we consume, consumes us. What we save, saves us. What we let vanish, vanishes within us.
In 2016, the Department of Interior listed 27 National Monuments to review with potential reduction or removal from federal protection. Shortly after this list was published, both Bears Ears and Grand Staircase / Escalante National Monuments were reduced to by up to 58% of their original size, putting both cultural, historic and archeological sites in jeopardy.
This ongoing series addresses these public places and the reality that when they are gone, we, in turn, vanish.
