Background of the Angeles National Forest

Summary
In the summer of 2015 I was on the inaugural artists-in-residence in the Angeles National Forest. I used the residency to kick off a project to document areas that represent the background of the Angeles National Forest, as defined by a Forest Service dataset that defines areas visibility in the forest. This dataset splits the forest into areas of foreground, middleground, background, and a final category named "seldom seen". There are seven areas of background in the dataset for the Angeles National Forest, and for the project I am hiking into each of these areas and photographing them such that they are the foreground of the image.
