In this ongoing project, I expose unfixed gelatin silver paper to various light sources and then place the paper in a sealed box for varied amount of times. The resulting "images" are subtle reflections of light, space, and time.
The Violet Hour
Of my breast
The rising moon;
And when I turn to look at it ---
In clumps of cloud.
As my two sons enter the liminal space between boyhood and adolescence, I reconcile my changing role as their mother. A veil is being drawn. I observe the near imperceptible moments that signify their independence. The soft flesh of a young boy transformed into muscle and sinew. A distant expression revealing an interior thought. Invisible threads are broken, never to come together again. Grouped together, these photographs represent a testament to this shifting relationship, a transitory moment in time.
