From the film school, I am a purest who believes in capturing photographs in the camera, with minimal post-production. It is not unusual to capture fewer than a dozen frames during a shoot. I am an aficionado of light. Esoteric camera technology is often employed, including spectra shifts (for example, infrared and ultraviolet) and hand-made equipment. I enjoy reverse technology, such as wet plate colloidal, Polaroid (including recovered negatives), expired film, and film that I have made myself. I shoot a variety of formats using 35 mm, medium-format, and large-format equipment. My color work is usually digital, but most of my contemporary work is monochrome, and the majority of those images are shot in film.
