Do you cherish the days when you and your world are in sync? I cherish these moments so much I create and reveal them with my art.
I make paintings with 35mm film, a Pentax K1000, and in camera multiple exposures methods. I shoot at least three photographs on every 36 film frames. Since I photograph with 35mm film and all analogue equipment, I don’t get to see how the images will look until I develop the film. I rarely document precisely what is on each film frame. You might think me crazy, but I actually do this on purpose because I want my art to come from my gut and not from my head.
When I am on location shooting my photographs, I have to trust that I am taking the right image for the right frame. It makes me listen to my intuition, to stay open to the unexpected, and most importantly to play. When I do, the results are magical. Even after 14 years of taking photographs in this way, I am still amazed when I discover synchronicity in my photographs.
