    Ian John Solomon is a Detroit born photographer exploring people and place with a focus on the Black Michigander and Michigan Landscape. Utilizing instant film and natural objects Ian collages subjects into places he feels they belong, using landscape to help carry their story. Expanding on questions of Desire, Escapism, Memory and Self Actualization Ian visualizes the exploration and difficulties of these ideas rather than presenting a definitive answer- carving away at a subjective foreground to reveal the tangible truths he believes land offers.
