Entry Description

Silver Gelatin Lithography Prints made recently from a body of work I've been shooting for two decades with several HOLGA cameras. As a person who struggles with bipolar disorder and a sober member of the recovery community I figure I've always been drawn to the foggy way one can bleed negatives together in painterly fashion with a HOLGA. I learned to do this sort of precisely with practice over the years but impossible to do perfectly thank goodness. The imperfections are what make these stark ghostly scenes so beautiful to me. They make sense. They tell the right story. I have been showing and selling this work.
