These pieces are an extension of my collaged negatives in the "Fragments" gallery. These are quite small, approximately 4 x 6 images, more or less. I started creating these in late December, 2015 and took a break in January after classes started back up. There are more coming, as I loved making these!!

Hello! Thanks to those who are popping back in to see what's new as well as to those who are wandering by for the first time! I'm glad you're here!
I added a new gallery, "Traditional Photography" There are many more images being added to this gallery within the next month or so. I've also added new photos of the outside of Dammasch State Hospital. These can be seen at the top of that page. I've also added both photos AND stories to the "Sleeping Quarters and Bays" folder. There's still a lot of work to be done on the Dammasch page, but it's coming along well and hope you enjoy the content!
I am posting fairly regularly on my "Ruminations" page fairly regularly at this point, although I'm sure there will be lapses; by all means add the page to your RSS feed to keep up to date with what's going on around here.
An early Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it!
UPDATE: September 20, 2016
I've added a lot of content since July but have a long way to go. Slow and steady wins the race, right? :) Thanks for everybody who's checked back over the last month! I hope you continue to do so as more photos and objects are added weekly!
Hello all, as of Friday, July 29th 2016, I am actively working on this site. As many of you know, I have 5 active bodies of work as well as many older photos to archive, and a series on Dammasch State Hospital. I hope to have more than a rudimentary, working site by mid-September. If you are looking for tintypes or silver gelatin prints, you can see some of those here until August 6th. If you have questions, don't be shy to hit me up via the "Contact me" page.
