Devon John Chebra is an artist, photographer, and lover of the natural world. Using alternative photographic processes and foraged and repurposed art materials, she strives to create reminders of the magic and wonderment hiding in the most mundane parts of our days. Her most recent explorations in chlorophyll printing and anthotype celebrate plants’ natural light-sensitivity so no added chemicals are needed. All of the resulting pieces remain delicate and unfixed, best preserved being tucked between the pages of a beloved book and only brought out when a little bit of magic is needed. These messy, often baffling processes keep her curious and open to reimagine the more ordinary parts of life.
“If the wineberries growing in the overgrown edges of the neighborhood can be turned into a light-sensitive stain, and that stain can hold an image, even temporarily, just about anything seems possible!”
