Antique- and aged-looking photograph of a dreamy, perhaps nocturnal landscape. In the foreground a massive tree rises up into the hazy night, and trees recede into the distance. White pock marks give the whole scene, sky and land, an ethereal starry look.
Photograph taken and treated with techniques to make it look antique and aged. The ethereal landscape image of rural Virginia evokes history and the memory of a pastoral past. The subtitle of the piece, Manassas #25, reminds us that this landscape was a Civil War battlefield and makes it seem that the ghosts of the antebellum South and of the Civil War haunt the landscape.
