Artist Statement

“You can close your eyes to reality, but not to memories.”
  … StanisÅ‚aw Lec (1909-1966)

I work with handmade photography and collage in a studio filled with old books and other oddments.  Interacting synergistically, these objects enable me to continue my ongoing investigation of the photograph as a story written with light – a story that may, in fact, never have happened.

“Separation penetrates the disappearing person like a pigment and steeps him in gentle radiance.” 

  … Walter Benjamin (1892-1940)
