For 2016, I'm kicking off a new series tltled, LOST WORLD. The work depicts my traditional landscape work mixed in with some dinosaurs shot during a recent safari we took deep into the woods here in Florida. I hope to visit more dinosaur sites and roadside attractions to add to the series - maybe even take a trip out west to see the tar pits. For this body of work, I elected to work in the wet plate collodion process to make it look old, distressed and as if it were from another period of time, long gone. I believe the process ties all the images together creating a mysterious, dream-like reality to the work. Lost World will be exhibited in March in a group exhibition in my favorite city, Charleston, SC.
In the coming weeks, I'll keep you posted on the series and more information about the opening in Charleston!
