A collection of photographic images depicting endless tracts of dirt stretching toward horizons set amidst the exquisite drama of tropical skies. Lizama has turned her camera lens to a scene so common the brain has learned to erase it — the omnipresent barren acres of earth awaiting construction of highways, shopping malls, office parks, and subdivisions. Earlier construction site images were shot in black and white, using a medium format film camera, and then the surfaces of the printed images are hand colored with photographic oils. Images in the latter part of the series are digital and Lizamaâ€™s hand coloring sensibilities are achieved using digital manipulation software. Curated by Tracie Heller.
