“Untitled (Paper Development)”


This photograph is part of a series that considers the process and craft of printing in the darkroom. The image was made while the paper was developing, and combines the moments of exposure and development. Each image in the series is one-of-a-kind, and for me, is a manifestation of photography’s allure—working with light and chemicals. My interest in photography began as a teenager, but didn’t become fully realized until I was an undergraduate student—when I took my first black-and-white photo class. After that introductory course, I proceeded to earn both my BFA and MFA degrees in photography. I am currently based out of Savannah, GA, where I teach photography at Savannah Country Day School.
