Banner Art detail: Walter Crump, "Repose"
I explore alternative ways in which cameras see the world. Trained as a painter and printmaker, I gradually mastered the art of photography when in 1986 I was asked to teach photography at my school. Previously, I had never worked in a darkroom. Over time, I as I became proficient, I grew fascinated with the possibilities of extending my vision through photography and began to concentrate on alternative ways to photograph, using both traditional cameras & handmade pinhole cameras. I soon gravitated from printmaking to photography first working in my darkroom and later digitally.
I photograph cityscapes, landscapes, people, details and found objects – anything that catches my eye. I merge most of my photographs, melding or welding multiple images, producing photographs that hover between photography and painting, leaving time, and words behind.
