Nightscapes
This series, set in the forest at night, uses effects of light and panoramic rendering to explore ideas of place and presence.

Photographs of the astronomical observatory built by Jai Singh II at New Delhi. This series, using black and white film, concentrates on the geometry and abstract form of the masonry buildings used for astronomical observations.
Jantar Mantar II
Equirectangular renderings of 360 x 360 panoramas from the 18th-century astronomical observatories built in India by Jai Singh II. In this gallery, the renderings maintain a conventional horizon.
