3 feet or 3 Miles, documents the destruction of a small utopia near my family home. In which we kept, chickens, ducks, and most importantly, my dad kept beehives. The images in this project depict the landscape after the trees have been felled, vegetation cleared, and a fence has been constructed. The destruction of this landscape to make way for the building of houses has destroyed not only our space, but also the trees in which birds lived, and the variety of native plants that grew on the land. The silence is deafening, and the land is scarred. The photographs in the project depict the destruction of this area, which is a fundamental element of the rapid area that I called home.
