Artist's Statement

I seek to communicate the essence of Place in my work; and to give viewers their own 'decisive moment'. I began photographing at the age of 16; and after pouring over a Christmas gift--Ken Heyman's "All the World's Family," in 1983--I knew my camera would never be far from me! I work in 35mm format using silver-based and chromogenic film, developing my film and making my prints in a wet darkroom, as well as scanning my negs and transparancies as August 2023!
Beginning with the writing and photography programs at Wesleyan University's Center for Creative Youth in high school, I continued to take formal classes in photography & darkroom technique throughout college. Upon graduating from New England College (NH) I moved to Washington, DC where I assisted a studio photographer, gaining experience in studio and darkroom management, and lighting technique. I've been an active and exhibiting photographer-member of Washington Street studios/art collaborative since 2008. As a member of The Art Connection Boston, I have photographs placed at TILL (Toward Independent Living & Learning) in Watertown, MA, Roxbury Community College, Bridgewater State University, and the Eliot Community Human Services in Malden. I exhibited in TEDxSomerville in 2012, and was an active SOS volunteer from 2012-2017.
Ken Heyman, Eugene Atget, James Nachtwey, and Mary Ellen Mark are my photographic mentors; I seek to photograph as beautifully as Lord Dunsany wrote; and hope to photograph well enough to be remembered after I die.
