Photo Series, 20 Archival Pigment Prints on Newspaper, 80 x 120 cm, 2017

The photographs for this series were taken in Hollister, a small town located in the South Bay of the San Francisco Area, California, in March 2017.
Hollister was built directly on the highly geologically active Calaveras Fault, a strand of the greater San Andreas Fault system. The whole town is being deformed by plate tectonics in real time: as a result of this "fault creep", Hollister is being ripped in two, for the most part along a narrow zone running right through the middle of town. Many sidewalks, walls, buildings, curbs and streets in the area are slowly moving apart due to the slow and steady fault movement. The creep rate apparently varies in an unpredictable way.
