Nancy Pobanz Overview
Growing up in rural Ontario, Oregon, I did not appreciate the arid landscape while living there. At the age of 45 it finally occurred to me that my childhood setting has subconsciously been a major influence for a long time. Now, while revisiting that magnificent terrain, I collect earth and rock samples and photograph the exposed landscape. I now pay attention to what was so ordinary and expected - and study it with fresh eyes, every trip being different than the last.
