Welcome!

 

Fall 2022 - Who doesn't love mucking around with messy emulsions and darkroom chemicals?  Over the past summer, I've been exploring alternate photographic processes, and have been playing with anthotypes - images made using plant based emulsions and sunlight, as well as cyanolumens, made by coating 4x5" photographic film with cyanotype chemicals and also exposing them to sunlight.  I'm loving the "one of a kind" effects, and the ephemeral nature of these photographs...  they must remain in darkness or they'll keep fading away.  But don't worry, I've scanned them and made permanent prints as well.

May 2022 - As photographic techniques become more computer-driven, I find myself enjoying historic methods of image creation more than ever...  there's something about the ephemeral quality of these processes that appeals to me and complements the nature of my subject, in that light, landscape and human situations are transitory and cannot last.  This photograph, while originally taken with a high-end digital camera, was contact-printed from a digital negative on analogue photo paper, and subsequently re-processed using the mordencage technique.  So fun to be playing in the darkroom again.


 

March 2022 - I'm honoured to have one of my photographs selected for SNAP Toronto, an annual photographic fundraiser in support of ACT (Aids Committee of Toronto). Bidding for the auction is now open through Waddington's Auctions.  For tickets to the SNAP 20th Anniversary Gala on March 24, check out: SNAP Toronto.
