Undiscovered country

From the series, "Returning to where I've never been."

Holga 120N, Kodak Tri-X


  1. Just sayin - I love the name of the series! It reminds me of something Robert Frost once said about writing to find out what he didn't know he knew or something like that...goes to the heart of what it means to be an artist. It isn't just about recording what's there, but what wasn't there until we decided to record it.

  2. Thank you very much, Gabriella! I think there's much to be discovered in the process of making art ... In this series, I'm "returning" both through the content and the process. In terms of content, I'm experiencing familiar places/situations in new ways. In terms of process, I'm "returning" to one more closely resembling the process of double-exposing an entire roll of film that Paul Romaniuk used in his amazing series, That summer at the lake, after I'd adapted it in a different way for my own series, A geography of connection and loss.
