A friend once said that I, "Photograph invisible things and can show you what they look like." It's true; my methods aren't ruled by what I can see. My sympathies lie with the subtle way a lens transforms a scene, the latent potential of the negative and in what the chemical processes of the darkroom reveal in the developing image. The photographs presented here are from an ongoing series titled Practicalities. Withe these images I look to unveil the sentiment, suggestion or specter lying just beneath the surface of a person, place or object. Each photograph is a gelatin silver print split-toned in selenium and/or thiourea toner. This inherently aleatoric craft makes each print unique; they are artifacts of practice and practical experience. It's not the seeing I care so very much about, but the beings seen and the gravity of their being seen again.
