December 7 – February 27, 2022
I photograph places that I am familiar with in the Hudson Valley and that, over time, I have become emotionally, psychologically and physically intimate with. I find myself seeking out the nuances in everyday moments and compelled to make pictures of these shifting and uplifting elements. Generated by repeated encounters with place, the perspectives that I convey reinforce my connection and appreciation. I am particularly drawn to qualities of morning light and the shapes that appear at this time. As an aspect of my daily meditation practice, these works express a quietness and calm that provides a counterbalance to the stories in my mind.
