Lens & Eye Show
The visual image and the dynamics of light have always intrigued me, whether it’s a live, changing image happening around me, or whether it’s an image created by a brush or camera. For me the camera is a creative tool, used to explore light and imagery. I continue to explore the light in the digital darkroom, using old and new tools and techniques to create images from my photographs.
Themes have emerged over the years, and are reflected in my current work. Cultural architecture describes my interest in photographing structures, churches and buildings; grain elevators and barns of rural America; ghost towns, mining district structures, doors and windows, and forms of water–to name a few. Landscape and nature images are everywhere and constantly changing from stunning to stunning in the weather and light of the moment.
In the late 1950’s I took a picture for the first time with grandma’s Brownie box camera, and continued to use our household snapshot cameras of the times. Since then I have been making pictures with some sort of camera, such as an SLR, video and twin lens, medium format cameras. In 2009 I jumped into the digital photography world and haven’t looked back. I enjoy the creative possibilities digital photography and technology offers the artist photographer in today’s world.
