My creative foundation was significantly informed by growing up in darkrooms. I learned color printing in NYC in the early 2000’s as the digital revolution supplanted the analog process, but my formative experience working with an enlarger, a point source of light and sensitized paper continues to influence my creative vision. In this ongoing series, I use the relative absence of light at night in order to selectively activate the places in which I work. These activating marks of light and shadow are the product of unique and relatively basic alignments of source, reflection, screen and projection. Some are cultivated consciously, while others are gleaned.
