Sri Lanka - (2019) While traveling by train on the western coast, I heard about how devastating the tsunami had been there a decade ago. I do not know what it was like before but I saw the fragility and simplicity of living life on a beach.
Airportals - (2016- ) Tracking panoramas shot on runways.
Constr(u/i)ction - ( 2015- ) These are digital circum-ambulations through the artifice of urban construction sites. I have always been interested in the grid mostly because of the information it relays about spatial orientation. They abound in construction and are usually not rectilinear for very long after exposure to earth conditions. And they are largely scrims of obfuscation begging to be looked past.
Stratum - (2008- ) This series engages awareness of the complexity of (spatial) information that can be layered between the viewer and the “perceived”.
Gowanusites - (2010-11) These images are slightly tweaked framings of some diaphanous and unidentifiable substances observed en route the surface of Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal. Beautiful color becomes directly related to toxicity.
Photograms - (1976-2006) Unique silver gelatin photograms. Composed of found objects and cut paper, exposed with various light sources including matches, flashlights and Christmas lights. My interest was in tearing holes in usual time/space constrictions present in the making of a photograph. Total exposure time approximately 15 minutes for most. through this exploration, I became interested in photography as improvised performance. The finished documents are recordings of successions of light events that happened to the photo paper.
Terrain - (2000-07) - Recordings of some pauses/stops made while scrolling through the camera's focal plane. These happened if I was startled when the frame had momentarily staged an enigmatic picture. Rationally this happened due to the properties of the lens optics and the qualities of the specific spatial detailing.
Botanica- (1996-99) -Selectively applied photo-chemistry on exposed silvered photo paper. Chemistry application methodology reiterates the botanical structures exposed on the paper. It might be sprayed or dripped or brushed as relates.
Figure Reciphered - (1991-96) -Selectively applied photo-chemistry on exposed silvered photo paper. The paper was first exposed to film shot of various figuration then brush applied to paper.
Printed Landscape - (1987-90) - Photographs of the interiors of books & magazines wherein previously photographed subjects are re-framed within their three- dimensional context.
