With an acute sense of nostalgia for sheer emptiness, Baron retraces and rediscovers landscape photography through images of abandoned fields. In this series, Baron is particularly interested in adding an iconic relic of technology to the landscape—a Ford pickup truck. She repeats a gesture seen often in advertising, but with no commercial complicity. The impulse to fuse decaying technology with a venerable landscape is the driving force of this project.
