New Directions

These photographs are selected examples of new ideas I’ve been exploring. Most of them show common household objects. The last five photos are composite images that feature antique cabinet cards. This was a style of portraiture popular in the last half of the 19th century. I’ve collected many such cards, some of which date back to the 1860s. I like giving the photographers and their sitters a new look–and a new audience–more than a century after the original portraits were made.

 

Represented in group exhibitions at the 1650 Gallery, Center for Fine Art Photography, Darkroom Gallery, and Southeast Center for Photography.
