Inspired by the rainiest spring on record here in New Orleans, (!) this lumen print is one of a collection of prints I made after those April showers brought a bounty of May flowers...and a lot more rain! Each 5 x 5.5 print was created on expired photographic paper, exposed on a rare sunny day and framed within a border of raindrops from collected rainwater.
At the root of all my work is my worldview. From the tiniest twig to the largest tree, the natural world is a source of inspiration for me, as well as the environment we create for ourselves. As the world becomes more modernized, I often find myself in nature connecting and recognizing humankind’s place in the world. With that thought in mind, I use the 19th century technique of lumen printing to create a true impression of our world. In my lens based photography and songwriting, I explore the world, reflecting on what is, what can be and the relationship between ourselves and nature. I love sharing with others whether through new works, exhibitions, performances/presentations, teaching, and random stories. I believe that when we form a connection, whether it lasts for a moment or a lifetime, the benefits are infinite.
