Daniel Dancer's "Zero
Circles Project" sets out to end logging in the West's public
forests by illustrating the history of logging on these lands, as
well as illuminating the wonders of the native forests that remain.
He has trekked across forests of the West, forming circles of fire,
people or wood - then quickly snapping photos. These are the
circles of both wholeness and a "zero-cut" policy for our national
forests, Dancer says. Alone, these photographs won't change
policies and they won't save forests, but they are a beautiful and
quirky form of activism that, for a moment, sets aside the debates
of politics and science.
