About Bernice Williams
Originally I studied painting and sculpture. My first photography course was undertaken primarily out of curiosity but it soon became my preferred creative medium. From 1998 to 2001, I worked as an artist in Egypt on a project documenting inscriptions on temple walls. During that time I continued with my photography, primarily concentrating on the architectural space and details of ancient Egyptian monuments and the Islamic structures in Cairo. I am still interested in architectural images, but cannot confine myself to one genre alone and tend to photograph whatever captures my eye or imagination. Recently I bought a digital camera and really enjoy working in the "digital darkroom," but I continue to work on several projects in black and white film.
