A word about my technique:

The unique luminosity and sense of depth present in my images are achieved by a technique I have developed over time. The entire process is done on camera; no computer manipulation is involved.
Starting with a Black & White film, I move into creating different layers of color film which I then hand-paint and shoot  digitally through layers of thick glass.
The end product is a chromogenic or an Archival pigment print.

Print sizes:26X36  and 36X52
