Artist Statement

This is an investigation of alternative processes (cyanotypes and gum bichormate prints) which considers all the photographic images which swirl around and bombard us in the modern world. The saturated colors I use are just a slight exaggeration of the intensity of the effort to seduce the viewer to want the people or objects that seem to be for sale everywhere we turn.
