Lumen Prints

There is an immediacy and magic to lumen printing. Salts, precious metal, natural subjects, and sunlight combine to capture the shadows of my local ecological landscape, describing their exquisite forms and structures in minimal detail. Making these images is a form of investigation as well as play, allowing me to quickly respond to light and land. I often print in the same sunlight that shines on my subjects, allowing me to observe the quiet processes that surround us every day, deepening my understanding of our communion with nature.
