A perfect storm led me back to film. Unsatisfied with digital everything, determined to slay the exposure triangle, I unpacked my student camera and headed out to a local film festival. It was here that I caught a showing of "Finding Vivian Maier". My heart sang as I left the theatre, sensing that pieces were falling into place. This pivotal point, with my K1000 in hand, was the beginning of my journey back to film.
The entire process from pressing the shutter release to losing myself in the shadows of a black and white image, is a rush! Instinct informs both what and how I shoot. The more unpredictable the camera, the more abstract the image, the more satisfied I feel. I carry a number of cameras ranging from toy to a bit more complex with me daily.
I live with my husband and two sons in Michigan where most of my photography has happened. Our dog, Zeus, is my enthusiastic sidekick. He wanders the woods and wetlands that surround our home with me. When he sees me pull out any camera, he knows it's GO Time.
