My images are hand-made—not digital, although I do sometimes use a sewing machine to make photo “collages.” I have enjoyed printing in various darkrooms—Durham Arts Council, Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies, and my home darkroom.
My photographs are about mystery, mood, observation and remembrance. . .. aspects of the images often seem already imbedded in my memory, possibly as they possess some formal characteristic of previously seen works of art—a cubist painting, a rich black ink calligraphy script, a scene from a film noir. Bringing them forth is a joy.
