The North Eastern Estates studies how geographic location alters the built environment.

Photographed over three winters within Hokkaido, Japan, 2010-12, the work researches constraints in building parameters and how these alter the aesthetics and longevity of permanent structures placed into the environment.

The completed series demonstrates the annual transformation of the industrial, residential, and rural built communities.
