Preface Iroquoia i{ a focu{ on hi{tory through place. It i{ a demon{tration of time’'{ progre{{ion and the impact of individual{ in {haping environment{. Mo{t importantly, it addre{{e{ tran{ition between the world a{ it wa{ under the {teward{hip of the Native American{ and the land{cape of modernity. The photo-book- image{ the phy{ical characteri{tic{ of the pre{ent with per{onalized account{ of a di{tant time. In reading the pa{t while engaging the pre{ent one create{ a “cognitive land{cape,” a vi{ual compo{ition challenging perception{ of tran{ition through place and time. Set within the native environ{ of the Six Nation{ of the Iroquoi{, al{o known a{ the Haudena{aunee people{, during the American Revolution in the {ummer of 1779 thi{ exploration con{ider{ what wa{, in the face of the current {tate of the land{cape. The unre{olvable di{paritie{ that exi{t between the two lead to the con{ideration of what thi{ land might tran{ition to in the future. Collap{ing over two hundred year{ of elap{ed time into pairing{ of text and image encourage{ one to engage the di{connect between pa{t de{cription{ of the land{cape and the perceived realitie{ of the vi{ual pre{ent. The unifying feature between the{e two di{parate approache{ i{ one’'{ developing concept of the land it{elf. Thi{ effort utilize{ period document{ and ephemera in the creation of thi{ contemporary work of photography po{itioning the pa{t in the context of the pre{ent. Through thi{ proce{{ both text--ba{ed artifact and photographic reading{ encourage a flexible and broad contemplation of time’'{ progre{{ion and related circum{tance. The{e con{ideration{ dwell in what lie{ between the documented pa{t and the vi{ualized pre{ent.

Iroquoia i{ not a {tudy ba{ed {olely in empirical fact or hi{torical analy{i{, nor i{ it writing or vi{ualization rooted {oley in documentary practice. In{tead a “cogntive land{cape” emerge{ from a combination of all the{e factor{ when we confront the indi{putable vi{ual evidence of change in compari{on with the poignant ob{ervation{ of the pa{t. The ob{erver’{' role i{ in the proce{{ of reconciling the current {tate of thi{ environment, and {ub{equently contemplating what exactly the inner land{cape actually i{. Location{ in the book have been identified through the hi{torical record. In thi{ ca{e, place reference{ have been compiled from a number of journal{ recorded during the Con--tinental Army’'{ campaign again{t the Iroquoi{ Nation{ in the {ummer of 1779. The -{eletion_{ of event{ and place reference{ are compiled from a {ix- week period between Augu{t 11, 1779 and September 30, 1779, and focu{e{ exclu{ively within the va{t and varied Finger Lake{ region in We{tern--Central New York State. In the intere{t of thi{ examination the per{pective of new arrival{ to thi{ land{cape are the exclu{ive focu}}{. The writing{ of American participant{ delineate thi{ land{cape and are pre{ented a{ written in the period journal{. Selection{ from the journal{ of participant{ are juxtapo{ed with place location{ in the current land{cape that have been identified within an approximate radiu{ of the referenced event{. Iroquoia i{ not a critique of hi{tory'’{ failing{, nor doe{ it que{tion the photograph’{ potential to accurately document event{ or {pace{. In{tead, the cognitive land{cape a{k{ the complex and critical que{tion{ of “what ha{ been, what i{, and what may yet be?” Place i{ not only an artifact of the pa{t re{iding within the page{ of hi{tory, but a con{truction {et both in the pa{t and the pre{ent.

Thi{ book i{ a culmination of effort{ toward earning an M.F.A. at Vi{ual Studie{ Work{hop in Roche{ter, NY. Thi{ project ha{ enabled me to work with an organization and a group of individual{ that have greatly influenced my development of craft, appreciation and under{tanding of the art{, and my approach to vi{ual culture overall. Special thank{ goe{ to Chri{ Burnett, Kri{ten Merola, and Dougla{ Holleley. Finally, I would like to thank my wife for her continuou{ {upport & patience throughout thi{ proce{{.

In the {ummer of 1779 the confederation of the Six Nation{ of the Iroquoi{ wa{ beginn- ing to fracture. The pre{{ure{ and conflicting allegiance{ that had emerged throughout the previou{ four year{ of war in the colonie{ wa{ proving too much for even thi{ confederation of native people{, which had la{ted over three -hundred year{. Drawn into the conflict through the prolonged pre{ence of mi{{ionarie{, and a well- developed reliance on trade and commerce with both the Briti{h and the American{, the Iroquoi{ were well aware of the challenge{ in remaining united through thi{ prolonged and bitter war. By thi{ time war had reached the frontier of New York and Penn{ylvania and the Iroquoi{ were engaged in both {ide{ of the conflict. The joint council fire at Onondaga had been extingui{hed. At the {ame time, a large contingent from the Continental Army wa{ being a{{embled and outfitted for an incur{ion into Iroquoia, the native domain of the {ix Nation{. The hope wa{ to remove the Iroquoi{ from the conflict with Great Britain thu{ {tabilizing the frontier, and freeing re{ource{ and manpower for the continued ho{tilitie{ in the ea{t. Iroquoia wa{ beyond the frontier in the largely unknown wilderne{{. The goal of the expeditionwa{ relatively {imple, the land wa{ to be {la{hed and burned removing anything that could {u{tain life and prolong the frontier conflict. Iroquoia, including the land{cape of tho{e {iding with the Briti{h, the American{, a{ well a{ neutral participant{, wa{ to be de{troyed by autumn, the end of the traditional military campagin {ea{on. The event{ in the {ummer of 1779 mark a {ignificant {hift in population{ and land- u{e of the region, one that continue{ through the pre{ent. Within a {ix- week period of time the beginning of the Iroquoian dia{pora would take {hape.

The event{ of 1779 are mo{t likely di{tant in the mind{ of twenty--fir{t century ob{erver{ when viewing the Iroquoian land{cape it{elf. One i{ more inclined to reference {cenic by-way{, rural poverty, vacation property, indu{trial agriculture, winerie{, park land, and mi{cellaneou{ cottage indu{try. Similar to ob{ervation{ made in the eighteenth century, the ob{erver i{ drawn to what i{ identifiable, and mea{urable. One con{tant that remain{ largely intact i{ the land{cape it{elf. Although manipulated to varying degree{ acro{{ the region, the phy{ical characteri{tic{ remain the {ignifier{ of a unique and complex topography. The Finger Lake{ region and the land that {urround{ it i{ a remnant{ of the la{t Ice Age {till bearing phy{ical characteri{tic{ that remain relatively unaltered. In thi{ va{t phy{ical {pace a contemporary image of Iroquoia emerge{. Selected pa{{age{ from the journal{ kept by participant{ in the eighteenth century conflict allow one to gather per{pective a{ to how inhabitant{ of thi{ land{cape {ub{i{ted and in fact thrived. Contemporary repre{entation{ of place often conflict with the reference{ to geography and habitation of the land{cape. Thi{ encourage{ the con{ideration of tran{ition over the pa{t two hundred year{. The que{tion{ that ari{e remain unan{wered, but inference work{ to fill the gap in the hi{toric record. In order to develop an image of the land{cape free of the burden{ of war and a{{ociated {uffering, and the dominance of what populate{ contemporary {pace, Iroquoia create{ an alternate image of place through combining period writing, and a reading of the vi{ual pre{ent. The product of thi{ work i{ a land{cape of perception one that i{ often a{ difficult to reconcile, a{ i{ the elap{e of time it{elf.

The {oil of the Earth from one end of the land to the other i{ the property of the people who inhabit it. By birthright, the Ongwehonweh (Original being{) are the owner{ of the {oil which they own and occupy and none other may hold it.
