Loch Raven

For several years now I have walked along the Loch Raven Reservoir several times a week. This project began as a series of Instagram posts. I would post each time I visited the res, and so there are hundreds of images. I have edited the series down to roughly 180 images. Recently, I began pairing the images into diptychs, as seen here.

Ephemeral Permanence

Ephemeral Permanence, references the natural world in an effort to consider the transitory essence of being, and to confront my own sense of existential dread. Finding comfort in the transient cycle of Nature, I hope to convey tranquility and solitude in an era of chaos and uncertainty. This body of work contains two separate series, one created by digital means, the other utilizing traditional photographic techniques, specifically the Sabattier effect. I hope to honor historical tradition, while also embracing modern methods of photographic image creation.

Sabatier

A return to the darkroom, these images were created using the sabatier effect. This is a technique, also described as solarization, where you flash the paper with light during the development process. This reverses the tones in the black and white print.
