Saratoga Springs, NY, United States
My works combine and synthesize modern photographic technology with very traditional tools and techniques to achieve a very personal and contemporary synthesis. I am intrigued with the expressive potential of this merger, which offers a broad range of avenues to “re-present” (rather than document) forms in the visible world.
I am now exploring “alternative” (very traditional) methods of printing using the large format negatives. These include platinum/palladium prints and Van Dyke prints on a variety of hand-coated papers. These prints are fascinating, blending the origins of photography with contemporary techniques, and blurring the lines between photography and other two-dimensional art forms.
Focusing on film and hand-made prints, I continue to explore new methods of creating images that present my subjects in new and captivating ways. The end products stand as images to sense and experience rather than narratives to be understood.
