The Grass House is a series of photographs taken along a familiar path for the artist, on the rim of Haleakala Crater in Maui, Hawaii. The walk was an exer- cise in trying to place himself in the position of the narrator of The Findings film: retracing one’s steps in order to recover a familiar and beloved thing, only to be surprised by its continuous metamorphosis. Things took a fittingly unexpected turn when the mountain became shrouded in an all-encompass- ing fog, turning a path the artist has known all his life into a foreign land. Recovering the landscapes in his mind’s eye became impossible, and Graydon was left to photograph the opaque atmosphere itself.
