“Hands-on processes allow me to connect to my work in a more direct, intimate way. Creativity begins in the camera, but in the darkroom and now dimroom I thrive on the ability to change an ordinary image into something unique through gum, platinum, chromo, or mordancage, for instance. This sometimes unpredictable transformation of an image teaches me acceptance, flow, and commitment in the creative process.”
