Film-based, in-camera exposures combined with silver-gelatin prints are the foundation of my work. While this photographic process is rooted in the nineteenth century, it is the contemporary wet¬lands and forests — the watersheds — that serve predominantly as my backdrops.  My silver-gelatin prints and collages are sequenced and in¬stalled into contemplative spaces such as exhibition walls, portfolios, and books. For me every step in this process is humbling because I continue to learn new things every time, which is good for my health and the community around me.
