These photographs were taken during the early years when the drought began in the Bay Area. Their sole purpose at that time that I made them were just personal records from the hikes we did as part of my journey towards healing my body. I didn’t think much of them for a few years until I came across a water conservation slogan this past spring called “Brown is the New Green.”  Reading this made me pause and think about these photographs again so I unearthed them to present an interpretation of the slogan.
