I was born and live in St. Louis, Mo. I have returned to photography after several years, due to a major accident. Upon returning to photography, I felt a sort of "impatience of vision," the single frame would suffice no longer! I wanted to capture several aspects of what I was photographing, forming a "visual collage" inside of my camera; several exposures, on a single sheet of film. I attended Forest Park College where I received my Associates Degree in photography, Harris-Stowe State University for my Bachelors in Education, and graduate school at Webster University. I was formally an Art and photography teacher before my injury, and hope to return to teaching someday.
All images were taken with a medium format, 40 year-old camera. Silver gelatin prints, sepia/selenium toned and printed by hand. After suffering from major spinal reconstructive surgery, I have returned to photography and working in my darkroom. I find that a single image or view of a structure no longer appropriately captures the way I "see" said structure. All images are multiple exposures, taken in-camera.
