Photographic Works from 1980 to 2019


Statement of Work:

I have always been interested in photographic explorations and themes within the framework of the history of photography, using the agencies of traditional landscapes, social landscapes, and experimental landscapes.  The landscape becomes personal, like a pronoun. A terrain describing biographical, social, emotional, or cognitive experiences which define life,  sense of place, and time.  My working methods are unplanned, spontaneous, and visual outcomes that are unpredictable.  It is the unpredictability of creativity which is of interest and in a way that can only be produced by the photographic record.
