I’m interested in creating for the viewer the experience of being receptive to the mystery and changeableness of place. I give the viewer a chance to have an active exchange with what one sees.
Beauty interests me mainly as a means to truly inhabit what we see.
The photograms were made using found objects or ordinary, familiar objects – pie tins, coffee filter baskets, rug beaters, car parts, etc. I picked them for their patterns, for their inherent beauty, and because I thought they would translate well into print. I used printing out paper – a 19th Century type of photographic paper, no longer manufactured, which I exposed to sunlight to make the image.
