Emerald is an ongoing project-taking place in the Emerald Triangle in Rural Northern California. The Emerald is the largest cannabis-producing region in the United States. Situated through dense vast woods, running throughout Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity County. The population is roughly around 240,000 sprawled throughout the woods and in small cities such as Eureka, Arcata, and Ukiah. It’s not my intention to focus on the cannabis industry. I am drawn to the mood and tension that exists within the areas of the Emeralds changing landscape and the people that call it home.
