This dream inspired collage work is a mixture of my photographs, found images, and a little drawing. These are not digitally created, and the tactile nature of the work is very rewarding.
For this short series, I was interested in composing images that fit together cinematically so that the viewer could get a since of movement between photographs. Perhaps this suggestion of action between each shot, and the connection from one image to the next will create a story in the mind of the viewer.
This series is an ongoing project of pinhole images from my travels. A pinhole camera is simply a light tight container (in my case a wooden box) with a small hole (hence pinhole camera) that allows light into the container to expose a piece of light sensitive material. It is the simplest technology I could use to make a photograph. These images were captured on 4x5in film and contact printed onto watercolor paper that I coated with a light sensitive chemical called cyanotype. The technology used to create this body of work is all from the 19th century, which I find gratifying in this digital age. These are my postcards.
This is a new work-in-progress about how peoples lives are compartmentalized. These first pieces are specifically dealing with the desire to break out of the compartments that we place ourselves in daily.
