She creates digital negatives from an assortment of optical equipment and inventions, coupling these with unique alternative processes for both chemical and digital output. Inspired by her experiences in Provence, heart of photography’s early inventions, with a love of art, science, and critical thinking, she is an alchemist among photographers, with a desire to engage the multidisciplinary scope and interconnections inherent in this media.
