Project Description

Story-telling is an important part of our cultural growth and behavior. The seven energetic images selected for this series were produced by a photogram process and tell stories that reflect the idea of journeys, passages, memories, and thresholds that define our lives.

Artist Statement

“The photogram is a photographer’s theater. The process involves laying objects on light-sensitive paper, exposing the paper to light, and developing the paper through normal chemical processes. Rarely has the photogram been used to tell a story. These photograms are based upon the narrative format.”
