Neva River, Sounding No. 36A, St. Petersburg, Russia, 2012. Silver-Gelatin Selenium-toned Print Series of 21 Images, Edition of 5 / AP 1 / EP 1. 8 x 10 inches.

In this series of 21 selenium photographic prints, the alchemical qualities of the silver gelatin process are employed to explore the fundamental phenomenalogical characteristics of photography through performance and experience. 

A resting position is assumed by the artist for as long as twenty minutes while hand-holding the camera to document phenomena in remote natural settings during the darkest hours of night.

Affecting the predictability of the photographic process is the act of breathing itself. The rise and fall of the artist's breath is recorded in the blurs, streaks and shifts that occur – a culmination of multiple moments and a record of experience over an extended period of time.
