About Peggy

Baltimore County

I am a photographer and artist; I  grew up outside Philadelphia and moved to Baltimore in 1962.

Through A Window

This series began after I developed a great love of photographing through windows of moving vehicles. While unsuccessful at shooting from a car, I took these images either from the window of an airplane, or from the window of a train. A viewpoint that reveals a narrative, a patterning of the land, and to explore the freedom of applied color. After I print these images as black and transparent images on film. I paint them and mount the images on colored paper. The paint has expanded my interpretation of the landscape. The photographs themselves are the sort of images I delight in finding.
