I began working in traditional color photography just before the increase in options and accessibility of digital equipment and processes. The prospect of simultaneously observing/capturing/communicating and producing a striking image has amazing power in the art world, let alone in photography.

Working in the darkroom is a meditative process; watching the image reveal itself in front of one’s eyes is a private, patient activity that requires you to devote your attention to one singular image at a time, and to rely on your own skills and judgment to produce a work that has the ability to communicate your deliberate message.
