I am a Tucson-based photographer that uses analog and darkroom processes. I make photographic works using both historical and alternative darkroom printing methods, including gelatin silver printing, cyanotype, lith printing, and more. I love the hands-on experimentation required by darkroom work and I am enamored with the prints that result from it.
I shoot both landscape and portraiture. My portraiture is collaborative and focuses on a regionally-specific subject or demographic. In the past, I have worked with Tucson-based dancers, fighters, artists, musicians, families, and more. After shooting, I create limited edition darkroom prints, like the samples “Grace” and “Jose” included in my profile. My goal is always to produce works that are both honest to my subject and creatively driven.
Like my portraiture, my landscape work uses analog camera equipment. My images, like “Saguaro” in my profile, focus on the visuals native to Tucson and the surrounding region.
I am available for public art assignments. My prints range in size from 5x7” to 20x24” and are best suited for indoor locations looking to create gallery-like presentations.
I shot this image of a Saguaro standing before the Catalina mountain range using medium format black-and-white film. I created the final 16×20″ gelatin silver print in the darkroom. “Saguaro” is presented in 8-ply, acid-free mat board and a black wooden frame.
Grace is a Tucson-based artist. I shot this image of her using black-and-white film, then printed the final 16×20″ piece in the darkroom. “Grace” is presented in 8-ply, acid-free mat board and a black wooden frame.
