Redux

I have been working in photography labs for a couple decades now. They are strange spaces where an odd array of items coalesce in hopes to maintain a complex medium with an endless array of permutations. Each photographic lab speaks to its own personal history alongside a larger history of process and material. The photographic medium has undergone extreme changes with the advent of digital technology rendering some tools useless and others treasured. This transformation provides me with a space for invention and creativity by working in-between the two photographic polarities.

I have spent a good deal of time digging through cabinets, finding other people's notes and books, their stockpiled supplies and the traces of their artmaking processes. It feels like a necessary invasion of privacy; to make sense out of someone else's way of working and to create a space of functionality for those just passing through. It is an aspect of my work as an educator and artist that I have come to truly appreciate as I have moved from place to place; I can always find a recognizable thread in the pile of photographic odds and ends. The images in this exhibition are my attempt to reconcile several histories into one.
