As an artist/photographer, I work with light. Photography is about light and photosensitive materials. The process itself is magical. The landscapes in the photographs are visual metaphors for the artist’s transformative process and journey of reclaiming a sense of self and connection to the world/community.
The current photographs are black and white infrared photographs taken in South Dakota from a series entitledPresence in Time. This series of photographs was first started twenty five years ago while traveling across the United States. When I arrived in South Dakota the landscape intrigued me and I knew that I would one day return to photograph the land and sky.
