For fifteen years the primary subjects of my black and white photography were biological specimens collected for scientific study. In 2000 I began digital printmaking. Propelled by an initial collaboration for “The Poetic Dialogue Project,"I have been working with poets for the past fseven years to create image/text pieces. I find this cross-disciplinary collaboration a transformative process that is moving me into new conceptual and visual territory.
My work includes toned gelatin silver prints and archival pigment prints utilizing large format film. For recent work done in collaboration with poets I additionally use small format digital capture and Photoshop. I do my own analog and digital printing in limited editions. Statements specific to each body of work are available in the "Notes on Portfolios" and the "Notes on Collaborations."
