 “As a kid I was a Private Eye. Nancy Drew and Dick Tracy were my heroes.
We used tiny spy cameras. One of mine was worn on my pointing finger.

Not much has changed in 75 years. The hidden, waiting to be found, and the deeply seen still command my attention.

The pictures in this exhibition were taken with film in small plastic cameras and large, vintage view cameras.

Each is handcrafted in a darkroom using the noble metals, platinum and palladium which yield the most beautifully nuanced and exquisite image.”

 “…Nerval confessed in one of his progress reports to his editor : the more he wrote , the more he crossed out… only in erasure does the true image of our desire take shape . “
