This image is from my series, “The Last Man.” While living on a remote Montana ranch where the land is bordered by mountains and forest, and shared with top apex predators including grizzly bears, I’ve become focused on having a new understanding of birth, life, flight, death, and the transitions in between. I am also making images of comfort while searching for myself in a land that is not about me.
“The Last Man” series was a winner in LensCulture’s HOME ’21, and then in 2022 in Critical Mass TOP 50. Other projects have been featured in Harper’s Magazine, The New York Times, Virginia Quarterly Review, American Photography 10, 17, 36, & 39, and many others.
Lauren Grabelle was one of Photolucida’s 2022 Critical Mass Top 50 artists. This image was selected to be included in PCNW’s 2023 exhibition, Imminent Existence, which showcased one piece of each of the Top 50 artists.
