Wandering Along the Horizon
I’m drawn to the infinite, creative possibilities photography offers. I’m also eternally grateful to find myself in the midst of their magical moments – particularly when I’m still, listening carefully, exploring, and looking a little bit longer in order to make a picture. My current body of work is an exploration of constructed color, light, and shadow. Inspired by my background in modern dance, these images are formed with an intention to evoke movement, gesture, and sculptural qualities.
One image gently leads our eyes to another, and another, with graceful transitions and composed shapes. The symmetry, lines, angles, and arcs denote a physical vocabulary of suggested movement. Each image, a vignette leading to transitions and rests, as if I’m back in the rehearsal studios working out movements and phrases, wandering across the floor composing, shaping, and re-shaping dancer’s bodies. I’ve found dance, choreography, and photography have much in common.
