about me



silver (as in "noble metal") n. : a soft white precious univalent metallic element having the highest electrical and thermal conductivity of any metal; occurs in argentite and in free form; used in coins and jewelry and tableware and photography.



When it is winter in Brewerton, NY, I make black & white photographs. In my darkroom, when the snow flies and the wind howls, I am warm and fired. It is then that my juices flow. I deliberate and meditate for hours; I focus the negative in the enlarger, massage the print in the developer, stop, fix, rinse, then circle the cycle again. I never sit, always in motion as I burn and dodge the prints. It is physical, it is peaceful. No phone, no interruptions can occur lest light fogs the paper—a fortuitous reason to cut myself off from the world. I work in semi darkness, relishing the winter solstice. And finally, like a ghostly apparition, the image I strive for miraculously appears; it is black and white and lustrous shades of grey, a silver print—this precious metal now encases the image; it glows like a jewel lighting the darkness in my room.
