Artist's Statement

I'm drawn to the natural world, to hidden or ignored places, and to spaces humans abandon. I make pinhole cameras from discarded cans and tins (with paper negatives) to capture solargraphs, which illustrate the changing path of the sun over a period of time — usually several months or years. I also use film cameras like the Brownie Hawkeye, Holga, and Sprocket Rocket. Aside from B/W prints, I make cyanotypes, using anything from found objects and plants to enlarged or collaged negatives. These antique processes show how much can be captured using the most basic tools.
