Using a 16x20 inch camera loaded with sheets of black and white photographic paper, I focused on the subtle shifts in light as it fell on interior walls in my studio.

The salt prints that I’ve been working on recently represent my attempt to uncover the underlying essence of photography: making sheets of paper sensitive to the wavelengths of light that fall upon them and arresting that effect permanently.

Looking at the subtle variations of indirect light as it enters through windows into interior spaces is the subject of these salt prints.  Long durations of time, from 5 to 60 minutes, allow me to gather up the cumulative effect of these light rays onto sensitized paper. These subtleties thereby become visible to create an elegant recording of nothing more than light itself.
