My work uses layers of my imagery to present a personal experience of moment, place, person, or idea. This digital version of multiple exposure expands possibility in transparency, texture, and color that would be unattainable in most single-layered work and inserts intentionality into the process earlier and more critically than usual with photography.
The liberty of this process may make viewers ask whether this work is photography. For me, the answer is yes, they are. They are captured light and form. They begin with a camera and end with a digital darkroom process using digital equivalents of my old darkroom--but with greater precision and power. And like the powerful reportage photography that I grew up admiring, this work in its own way asks us to observe and to make sense of what is around us with greater attentiveness.
