Where Love Resides
Where Love Resides
In the spaces between memory and dream…
These visual poems relate the little things, the magical things, the mysteries that call to me again and again. They are expressions of love, in all its varied forms.
*Note: All photos in this portfolio are made on Ilford Delta 400 film with a medium format camera. All film is developed by me and then scanned.
It's the Wind We Remember
This portfolio is created on medium format film with a Bronica Sq-A camera from the 1980's. All film is developed by me.
The series is broadly inspired by the lyrics from the American musical group, Iron and Wine. Their song “Upward Over the Mountain” is what started me on this photographic quest… Well, you could say that it was that song coupled with the loss of my son, Ryan, in 2008. Sam Beam sings, “So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten. Sons are like birds, flying upward over the mountain…”
The series is an exploration of nostalgia, grief, beauty, loss, healing, light, wisdom, and tiny moments of stillness.
On your wings we are carried to the sea
Some whispers around the trees
You are a poem of mystery
My Wild Nature: Connection with the sacred
Hints of memory and dream,
of what used to be,
on the verge of disappearing....
And re-emerging into the wild.
A world of discovery
Safe in my little nest
From mystery into mystery
The seasons of a woman's life
In my fever dream
Waves of reverence
Words are like wings
The caress of light, the kiss of shadow
The weightlessness of wonder
My morning treasure
Morning in the Garden of Memory
A series of photos that is an homage to American photographer Joyce Tenneson. All of these photos are scans of negatives that were reclaimed from Fuji FP100-C peel apart film for Polaroid cameras. The negatives are washed with a bleach cleaner to remove the opaque black packing. It is the bleach cleaner that yields the wild, unexpected colors.
Exploration of Silence
Still life photography, polaroid sx70 style.
A meditation on the changing seasons and the poetry therein.
In the fullness of time
The sweetness of a kiss
A summer romance
Hope springs eternal
Diptychs, triptychs, collages made with a Polaroid sx70 and film from The Impossible Project.

Roots and Wings
My Wild Nature
The passage of time
In this space where I can breathe (part I)
In this space where I can breathe (part II)
In this space where I can breathe (part III)
Let's get lost together
