After Lee’s Retreat documents the landscape and history of the final days of the American Civil War. Through direct, wax rubbings, the large-scale, mixed media photographic prints physically imbue the language of the historical markers that chronicle and memorialize the historic sites. This binary layering of past and present considers the history, location, and the contemporary landscape of rural Virginia.
