  • The Light of History and Allegory
    Some type of sub-title
  •   To me seeing is a dynamic activity, one that requires us to use more than just our eyes.  It requires us to use our minds and imagination.  What I have attempted to do in this series is create a new vision, one that takes the viewer beyond the clichés of standard long exposure photography of streetlights or moving cars and into the realm of the invisible.
    The background I created, an innocuous piece of canvas with glitter on top, is only the means to the end.  It is not until I point light or allow the sun to reach the canvas that anything happens.  It is my vision that creates the light for others to see.  During this flight from nothingness, intuition and chance inspire and drive me to record what is not in evidence.
    I never looked at my images while photographing even though I was working digitally because, I wanted the entire spectacle hidden from my outer eye during the process of capturing the light.  To stop and look would have lessened the involvement of chance.  It would have halted the momentum of the photo shoot.  I wanted the empty frame of the photograph to be charged with the “kaleidoscopic spectrums of light.”  My goal was to achieve an intensity of color, hues, and a deep rich surface that has both a physical and visual texture.
