Modern Nature Photograms, 2020

 

I head outdoors at night, looking for strange objects and performing odd rituals - a nocturnal communion with nature creating a series of photograms.

Occasionally, my source material is portable enough to be brought into my studio, where I can work more slowly. When working directly in the landscape, however, I go out to a previously scouted location to document the subject of the work. There are a lot of variables that affect where and when I can work: weather, safety, light pollution, and the phase of the moon, because even moonlight will expose the paper.

Afterwards I expose the paper in a portable darkroom. Some images are presented as final; others will be used as accomplices for other works. This series’ intention is to draw connections between our broken relationship with nature and the experience of being human.
