A GLEANER'S LEXICON

I was trained in art photography in the early 1970’s, when the excitement of making pictures had to do with “seeing” - with an intense, abstracting relationship to the visual environment.  Like many of my peers, I was especially interested in finding and framing unexpected visual juxtapositions. By 1977 I had found that photographic collage – the construction of images from more than one photographic element – enabled me to extend my exploration of juxtaposition and the multiplicity of space, and to move it in personal directions. I have worked in photographic collage since then.

Over the past decades I have gradually built an archive of my own images – representations of my responses to the world around me – which become elements in my photo-collages. While taking pictures with a camera remains an exciting, primary activity, it is the first step in the longer, slower process of constructing composite images. Using elements from my archive together with new material, I work with ideas of fragmentation and wholeness, aiming to construct images which suggest the simultaneous coexistence of multiple times and spaces.

Several series of photo-collages are represented here, made with a range of mechanical, optical and digital methods.
