Nietzsche was wrong. That which does not kill you can leave you damaged, not stronger. Some lives start out in turmoil: birth defects, dislocation, poverty. Some people recover from trauma, some don't. Some eventually find their path; a sense of grace. My work materializes lifelines and milestones.

I expose chromogenic paper to room light and process it conventionally. I then selectively strip the paper using corrosive chemicals; this reveals the layers of color of which it is comprised, often accompanied by iridescence and the appearance of etching. The results are unpredictable, much like life. The process is of my own devising and proprietary;  the prints are unique.
