In the summer of 2016 I was looking for a new challenge, and with the growing ubiquity of the digital camera, I was drawn to processes that were slower, more tactile, and less controlled. My love affair with alternative photographic processes began. These images represent ongoing experiments with camera-less approaches. The hand applied emulsions allow me to play with the proportions of the chemicals, the addition of amendments, multiple layers of application, exposure times and conditions, bleaching, toning, and dyeing. The lumen printing and chemigram work on photographic paper, often quite old, expired paper, allows me to join a dance of time, sunlight, and chemical reactions. Some images are embellished with encaustic wax. Many are combinations of multiple processes. Riffs on a theme of pure play.
