Statement of Process
My current photographic work is determined by my vision of which
I would describe as Contemporary Pictorialism. It may evoke feeling,
mood or atmosphere. Through my use of a glass infrared filter in
particular, I create stylized and idealized depictions of the physical
world and aspects of nature.
Though my process in producing these images has moved from analog
to digital, I use the same traditional photographic principals,
lenses and glass filters to capture my images. I then process the
negative digitally using photoshop and print them myself using archival
pigmented inks on photographic papers and fine art media.
After taking a course in photography when I was a university student,
I became so enamored of it that I set up a darkroom in my grandmother's
garage to develop my own film and prints using my father's old equipment.
Lucky me! At that time, I was into what many young photographers
were, namely Street Photography and Photojournalism which then led
me to Event Photography, Portraiture, Conceptual, Landscape and
One of the things I love about photography is that it encompasses
and reflects culture in the broadest and narrowest of sense. It
is art (aesthetic), history (capturing and documenting the moment)
and science (technological innovation) all rolled into one. It continues
to progress and evolve which I view as not so unlike my own growth
process. To strive, to seek, to find, and to recognize the moment
underlies my approach to my life and photography.
