Alyson Belcher is an artist and educator who lives and works in Bend, Oregon and San Francisco, CA. All of her work is united by her obsession with the two most basic elements of photography: light and time. Her projects have ranged from self-portraits to abstract landscapes. She has worked with many photographic processes, ranging from the earliest type of camera (pinhole) to the latest in digital technology. New projects are born out of a need to communicate something internally and curiosity about different ways to work with the medium. She looks for the relationships between darkness and light, stillness and movement. Her subjects usually represent changes that take place slowly over time, whether it’s in nature or the human body.
