I am predominately a large format photographic artist who prefers to work within the methodical and contemplative confines of the view camera. My images are made with gelatin silver-halide based film and then, depending on the type of emotion I want to convey to the audience, printed on a variety of mediums. I develop and print all of my images by hand one at a time in my Lab.
My main printing mediums are commercially available gelatin silver-based paper, hand coated platinum/palladium paper and hand coated albumen silver paper. I prefer to produce contact prints in lieu of enlargements due to the sensibility and character they exhibit, which is quite unique in the modern world of ink jet prints. However, when I deem that the final expression demands such procedures, I do make enlargements on gelatin silver paper. Each print is washed, toned and mounted by archival methods.
