Abandon presents a phenomenon that most of us have probably stumbled upon at least once if not dozens of times, and have most likely only given a passing glance. A fallen leaf, on its way down from the canopy, is caught by the discarded thread of a spider's web. A breeze picks it up, and for a brief moment, it’s animated in a complex dance both balletic and frenzied.

I began shooting these videos while in residence at the Villa Montalvo in Central California. I’ve continued to document these as I find them.They are miniature woodsy versions of the danse macabre.
