I am always working with it. These photographs depict preoccupations and passions. I am always looking to find that “something” between absence and presence, that zone of ambiguity - the space where “things” happen, where the film captures what is felt; what cannot be seen. The search for verticality, horizontality, volume and rhythm, the mysterious thing called composition, and the geometry of light, shadow, and texture continue to reward and nourish me.
All color and B/W photographs were made from film, processed, and printed traditionally in the darkroom. Contact Susan Porter at Addison Woolley gallery for purchase or further information.
