Rain Pieces

In recent years my life has become increasing concentrated into a small mountain community in Tucker County, West Virginia. COVID made this physical stasis all the more extreme. This series is an attempt to observe the microclimate shift atop this ridge where I live and engage with the rain forest nature of the place. I use the 19th-Century Van Dyke and Cyanotype photographic processes to make these records of water and sunlight. I see them as visual artifacts from my immediate personal and atmospheric environment.
