My Lumen Landscape series will be featured in the Altered Narratives show at City Gallery at Waterfront Park in Charleston, SC. I am thrilled to be included in this stellar line up of alternative process practitioners and this is sure to be an excellent show! Thanks Diana Bloomfield and Christine Eadie for including me in this show and all your hard work putting it together.

Altered Narratives: 19th Century Techniques Merge with 21st Century Visions explores how historical photographic methods are being used today by contemporary photographers. Deemed “alternative processes,” these techniques have grown in popularity in recent years as photographers seek out the satisfaction which comes from the hands-on approach of crafting a photograph from start to finish. In a world of digital technology that creates limitless and effortless photography, these artists – Christine Eadie, David N. Hyman, Diana Bloomfield, Doug Ethridge, Heidi Kirkpatrick, Karen A. Vournakis, Matt Larson, Maureen Delaney, Rebecca Sexton Larson, Sandy King, Bill Vaccaro, and Kenneth Jackson – choose to create their vision using antiquated methods, which bring a distinctive style to their art. Incorporating techniques such as tintype, palladium, gum bichromate, and ziatypes into their contemporary work not only involves skill and expertise, but also displays a rare talent for combining the new with the old.

If you are in the area stop by the opening Friday, March 18 from 5 to 7 p.m. The show runs from March 19 through May 1, 2016.


Lumen printing is just one small niche in the larger world of Alternative Photographic Processes, so to have a whole show dedicated to the lumen process is amazing!!! Thanks Amanda Smith at A. Smith Gallery for hosting such a wonderful show. It’s great to see how everyone interprets one technique in vastly different ways. And thanks to Vicki Richardson Reed for selecting Treeline to be incorporated in this great show. If you happen to be in Johnson City, TX check out the show which runs from March 11 to May 1st, 2016.


I am honored to be included in Art Intersection’s Light Sensitive Show for the second year in a row! Thanks juror Susan Burnstine for selecting Waterfall. You can see my print along with some other amazing alternative process photography during the months of March and April in Gilbert, Arizona.
