“So much of photography is about control. Whether it be controlling exposure, development time, stopping a particular moment in time, or manipulating an image in Photoshop, we often attempt controlling reality as we see it. Photograms do not involve a camera. Items are placed under the enlarger onto photographic paper and exposed to light. The enlarger light creates the image by relating directly with the objects. Glass vessels are particularly interesting to me as the light transmits in unpredictable ways, creating something previously unseen”.
