We live in a world that values speed and technology. Yet, as a photographer and artist, I crave a slower pace with a focus on nature and storytelling with my work.
I’m drawn to everyday life and objects – whether it’s my own shell collection or finding out what others treasure in their lives. I see a special beauty and value in these objects of our past and the craftsmanship of those who still work with their hands. After a career in public relations, I’m searching for an emotional connection in my photography.
While so many photographers have moved on to digital cameras, I’ve stayed with film and the darkroom. There’s something special about the film process that slows you down not only when shooting but also in the darkroom. Using a Hasselblad medium format camera, each of my silver gelatin photographs is hand-printed using archival darkroom techniques.
