Although I built my career as a portrait photographer, I have always experimented
with other art techniques such as painting, printmaking and collage. Often the
resulting product blends photography with whatever my new-found favorite medium
happens to be. In a way, this allows me to rediscover my love for photography over
and over again through different materials.
When a dear friend introduced me to cyanotype prints, I was hooked. The cyanotype
process has similarities to film photography, and it took me back to earlier days,
before I made the switch to digital. In this series I started with some of my original
photographs that highlight a handful of my loved ones and my reverence for nature;
then I watched them transform through the cyanotype process into one-of-a-kind
prints.
