Rain Pieces

These works are cameraless photographic images which utilize sunlight, time and water to capture the variety and randomness of rainfall.

In recent years my life has become concentrated in a small village in the Appalachian mountains of the Eastern United States.  Historically, my photographic practice was often based on the visual unpredictability inherent in urban settings.  But access to this kind of space is not currently available to me.  So instead I observe the microclimate shift atop this ridge and engage the rain forest nature of this place.  And I learn, slowly, to make these visual records and artifacts from the subtle unpredictability inherent in my immediate personal and atmospheric experience.
