“The most transitory of things, a shadow,
the proverbial emblem of all that is fleeting and momentary, may be fettered by the spells of our natural magic, And may be fixed forever in the position which seemed only destined for a single instant to occupy.’
William Henry Fox Talbot
“The Pencil of Nature” 1846
I have held a long time interest in the entwined histories of art and photography.
A sense of excitement and wonder spread throughout Europe and then America with the appearance of the first known photograph in 1829. I have drawn on the work of those early photographers to sharpen my own eyes and give depth to my own photographic expression.
