From the series The Karsh Award 2016 titled Camera Obscura
Epson Legacy Fibre, Ultrachrome Inks printed on an Epson 4900
12.5 x 16.75 in. / 31.75 x 42.5 cm 
Edition of 6
Custom framed

"As an objective document the photograph reflects a moment in time: with quiet subtlety it may also provide an intuitive and penetrating subtext.

"Camera Obscura, a "room without clarity", of both entry and exit, (access to be granted), a metaphor suggesting a passage from one moment to the next, from one space to the next, a continuity to be discovered, rendering a palimpsest: in another context, A Room of One's Own. Virginia Woolf offers an interrogation for recognition within one's professional community; moreover, a discovery for one's perspective and immediate sense of place in history. She reflects upon an artist searching for a Room of One's Own, that her singular insight might encompass a lifetime of progressive thought."
