My photographic compositions inhabit a  non-ordinary visual space that is reached via the synergistic power of the digital darkroom.  To make these images, elements from individual photographs are isolated, transformed and moved into place among elements similarly isolated from other photographs.  The result is a sort of alchemical surprise that has the appearance of “reality” but is re-ordered to playfully escort us beyond the boundaries of our usual way of seeing.

As a photographer, my attention is attracted to the natural beauty and rustic architecture near my home along the Mississippi River in northwest Illinois.  Small river-communities such as Galena, Savanna, and Thomson serve as gateways to the surrounding old-growth forest, wildlife refuge, unglaciated terrain, backwaters and migratory bird routes. This is where most of the individual “source images” for my compositions are captured and combined.
