I produce photo based images that are anchored in the reality of photography with the extended metaphor of painting. I want the viewer to be aware of the surface of the photographic paper, the same as paint on canvas. The work is an invitation to look for the larger ideas within the image. The viewer shares the presence of the photographer and the geography, the structure of evidence. The physical reaction to presence with two degrees of separation, the camera/photographer/film to print to viewer, an apostolic chain of touch, one hand to the next. So gelatin silver paper becomes my canvas, evidence of me. My work attempts to expand the creative territory within analog photography. The images in this group range in size from 8” x 10” to 72” x 84”, most are 24” x 20”. Many of these images are the visual realization of poetry I have written to form an emotional template for a series of work.
