Title: “Dad and Uncle John”
Description: I have been a photographer for many years, so when making cyanotypes, I often create transparencies from my original images or from old family photos. With this cyanotype, I made a transparency from a digitally scanned photo of my father and uncle. They were children of Italian immigrants, so the theme “Inheritance” seems particularly relevant and has many meanings for me – the inheritance of ancestry, of ethnicity, of family, of connections between generations and of the commonality of the human experience.

Title: “Postcard from the Familiar”
Description: I recently returned home, to the place I feel most connected to. I slid a few sheets between the pages of my book and I sat down by the seashore letting my inner child emerge. Feeling as if I were sculpting in the sand, just as I did in my youth. I covered a sheet of paper with the sand and let the wind carry it away slowly, and then I washed it in the sea. My process is controlled chaos, I love allowing chance and weather to be partners in crime. This process is very forgiving, the season, sun and wind work their own magic. What I love the most about it is that it simplifies photography to light and time. It captures one kind of image, and I truly believe that it captures emotions the same as traditional lens photography does, creates a sense of intimacy, evokes emotions and leaves room for interpretation.
