fotography The journey of self expression through art began in high school. I was drawn to experimenting with 35mm film and the magic of developing images in the dark room, likely inspired by the photos from the Life and Look magazines that arrived every week at my family home. It was an introduction to the dynamic, expressive quality of a photograph by artists such as Margaret Bourke-White or Elliot Erwitt who captured human nature with visual poetry. Ever since playing with 35mm film, dark room and gum bichromate printing or Polaroid instant film and now, taking digital photos on an iphone, I continue to seek and compose little epiphanies framed in a quality of light and sentiment. Photography is a medium that stands alone as a form of expression, and as an illustrative resource that can be synthesized into my design and assemblage art work.
