new work

Here is some new work. i have been exploring photography and i must say i am loving it. It has caused quite a stir in my conception of myself as an artist. So much so that i may be changing my concentration in school from illustration to photography. Big news. More to come later.

Very, very nice stuff. My jaw dropped when I saw "theresa in the bathroom" posted on the bulletin board of the photo room.

Thank you so much Chris. i have a certain lack of insight to my work. It all comes from a very strange place that has no words and i cannot articulate much about that place, nor can i make reasonable evaluations about its products. Usually i don't have an opinion one way or another about a finished piece, because again, it just comes from this strange and silent place... i am completely in a vegetative, meditative state when i shoot and when i print (which you have witnessed on a few occasions, especially when i repeatedly run into you, literally, on my way in or out of the darkroom. i go off into la-la land and then i get amnesia for the events, i have a finished product and then i just look at them. Some of them i have strong emotional responses to, but i never think to myself that anything is particularly good. Or bad. Just... silent or white noise in my head. So i appreciate hearing this a lot. Thank you!
i have the monorail (insert Simpsons Monorail song here) this weekend, so for right now i have 12 shots loaded up and ready to go. Hopefully i will get a decent image out of those. See you on Wednesday! (also do you have a facebook? mine is

Why yes I do have a Facebook account, which I'm sure you know by now since you already accepted my friend request.

Which monorail do you have? The 8x10 or the 4x5?

i have the 4x5. its pretty damn exciting. i cannot wait to use the 8x10... ive been drooling over it/about it for months.
