Hello, Holga

On 22, Jul 2018 | In Notes

Early on in my new motherhood, it became clear that the Rolleiflex was not a feasible camera for use while front baby-carrying.

She’s Arrived

On 01, Jan 2018 | In Notes

Our beautiful daughter, Cecilia Mae, has arrived. Early and with drama.

But she is healthy, and we are over-the-moon happy.

Pictured here with her maternal grandmother, Mormor, with the trusty ole Rolleiflex.

Montreal

On 17, Jun 2017 | In Notes

My mother (and often muse) and I have each visited Montreal in the company of others, but never together. So, we made plans to leave our opposite coasts and reunited in this Canadian metropolis, humming with French and teeming with beauty.

Isabella

On 04, Jan 2017 | In Notes

Shortly after the new year began, we went back in time with a visit to the Isabella Steward Gardener Museum.

Founded by Bostonian art collector and patron Isabella Steward Gardner in 1900, the museum operates under a mandate by Gardener that her collection be open to the public according to her “aesthetic vision and intent.” The museum is housed in a villa she fashioned after a fifteenth century Venetian palace that wraps around a central courtyard. The notorious lighting varies from flooding skylights to dim interior rooms in a nod to authenticity and a bow to conservation concerns.

With an old twin lens reflex camera and slow Kodak Portra 160 film, I photographed select spaces that felt especially charged in their interplay of her objets d’art and the day’s winter light.

Found Forgotten Film

On 31, Oct 2016 | In Notes

Over the last few months, I have been turning back to film…

My studio practice has been so consumed with archaic photography printing processes, that it only seems fitting to now turn my sights back on the medium of film for image capture. With this turn, I have once again begun taking out my inherited Canon SLR, the camera that I first learned on in art school. The SLR was housing a half shot roll of four-year forgotten film, and so I took it to Stanford’s cactus garden to become re-acquainted. The space has the feeling of existing outside of time, so it seemed like an appropriate locale for such an activity. The results were rather satisfyingly strange.

The Process

On 26, Feb 2016 | In Notes

Having worked in archives and history being a central crux to my art, I thought it worthwhile to arrange to have my ongoing archaic printing process documented. Here is a selection of images following me through the cyanotype process from studio, to dark room, to rooftop sunlight exposure, and back to the darkroom again. Read more…
