Log bearers, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, 2010

Four National Park Service employees march in lock step, bearing a stripped and barren log to be used in a Yellowstone construction project. I photograph the chore from behind, abstracting it and giving it a sense of somber dignity amidst the flowing grasses that surround them. They remind me of pallbearers, carrying a work of nature that has been harvested and transformed by man. The grasses seem to act as mourners.
