“Nature within the urban landscape is simultaneously close at hand and hidden from view -- a paradox of proximal obscurity. Yet its myriad forms and manifestations are as diverse in kind as their human denizens. City parks, community gardens, nature centers, green rooftops, restored natural ecosystems, golf courses, back yards, alleys, vacant lots, landscaped public spaces, plus the resident non-human biota in all its riotous diversity and plenitude -- all these and more comprise urban nature." -Michael Bryson
“While Wandering” is a photographic exploration of Chicago's urban nature through the four seasons. Featuring an introduction by Michael Bryson, author of "Visions of the Land: Science, Literature, and the American Environment from the Era of Exploration to the Age of Ecology" (2002).
This book is the first in a limited edition three volume sample series. The series stands as an introduction to the work of Ryan Hodgson-Rigsbee and a glimpse into a bigger picture still to come.
