The International Standardization Organization (ISO) series considers the relationship amongst standardization formulas within writing templates, industrial production, and landscape photography. The affect of these man-made technologies have shaped language, imagery, and our relationship to nature. The found images, which are scanned and re-printed as enlarged copies, capture landscape and infrastructure that has been influenced by water. How do people image water? How do bodies of water symbolize an ideal Nature controlled and framed within the scalloped borders of the untrained eye? The intention and literacy of the original photographer hovers between the personal and the documentary, between the layman and the technician.
