In this body of work, Gret explores connections within lowcountry landscapes. Physical connections between places, such as waterways, roads, bridges, and paths, and emotional connections to places centered around certain events or special places frequented over the past 15 years living in Charleston.

Links that bond us to the lands we call home, and to the people who make it so. Connected, even while apart.
