These poems and images are about exploring memories and snapshots of time and places. The people in the photos I use are no longer physically with us, so my interpretation of the images comes from the notes written on the back of these pictures and post cards, or memories passed on by word of mouth. Some of the images have been developed into cyanotypes and then digitally altered. This work explores the boundaries of traditional photographic printing processes with digital media.
The stone beneath our feet
The photograph I estimate to be from the early 1900s. I wrote the short poem myself after observing the stone steps of an old manor house, a soft curve had formed from the centuries of footsteps that had walked on that very spot.
