“Equal parts Carlton Watkins and Anna Atkins, I am interested in visualizing a space over hours and days instead of fractions of a second. Usually installed in darkened rooms, one must spend time with the images before the details begin to reveal themselves. Each panel measures approximately three feet wide by six feet high, and are typically produced in pairs or groups of four.”
