In recent years, Terri has taken her photographic experience and merged her expressive and intentional compositions, to create prints using historical 19th century photographic processes. For more than twenty-years, she has worked out of her home studio where she is committed to utilizing one of the many printing techniques, to match what she feels the image is commanding. These print processes include bromoil, gumoil, and wet-plate.
“While digital photography is an active part of my portfolio, my preference has always been working with film and with antiquarian processes. There is something beautiful that happens in a darkroom when I watch the image come to life in front of me. In a world where people don’t print photographs as often, I need that tactile experience to stay in touch with my own artistic process. When I work in wet plate, bromoil, or gumoil, I catch myself in a delicate, yet graceful dance, between the camera and the positive image that is emerging in my hands. These are the experiences that inspire and grow my vision.”
