About The Artwork

Since my youth, I have been fascinated by the night sky; I spent many peaceful nights in the back yard with my telescope and chirping crickets. My photomontages allow the viewer moments of quiet contemplation and serve as reminders of the vastness of the universe beyond Earth and the fact that it is there always. Here, with the night sky juxtaposed with an abandoned house - its foundation plantings obscuring the first floor - we are further reminded that our lives and our belongings are temporary. The photo is printed with a white border on Lustre photographic paper. The photo will be signed and numbered on the back with archival ink and you will receive a certificate of authenticity. 30 x 30 inches, Series of Seven. Also offered in 20 x 20 inches, Series of 15.

I make photos and create montages that capture beauty and evoke emotion, both of the natural world and of human-made structures and objects. At age 12, my dad gave me a vintage Argus C3 rangefinder camera. Around the same time I became interested in astronomy and saved my babysitting money to buy a used Celestron 6” Newtonian reflector telescope. My dad built me a little observatory on our back hill and darkroom space in the basement. I saved more money and filled it with used darkroom equipment, developing gelatin silver prints from my 35mm film. By night I was regularly gazing through time and space, acutely aware of the vastness of the universe and Earth’s insignificance within that space. But by day I was out with my camera marveling at nature and capturing the beauty of our little miracle planet. Today my childhood passions merge when I use my images of the night sky as a backdrop to elicit contemplation of our place in the universe. I still feel our planet is precious and continue to capture the beauty of it, but I cannot ignore the impact humans have on it due to population growth as well as political and economic factors. While do I capture the results of that impact, I also see beauty in our structures and objects.
