Soundography
Project info

Photography is an improvisational art form. It requires the practitioner to respond in the moment, and in that fleeting moment to draw upon all of one’s mastery of composition, technique and creativity. When I finally crossed the digital divide in 2001, I began using technology to experiment with composition and improvisation in a different realm; one that allowed a greater freedom of expression with fewer boundaries and vast horizons and layers of choice. I have always viewed my work as a dialogic response to what I was experiencing; hearing the music and feeling it viscerally resonate in my bones. The improvisatory nature of my work has shifted to capturing palettes of shapes and colors; creating a visual vocabulary of sound. I have incorporated movement of both camera and body; responding to the immediate resonance of a sound vibrating in my ears. These soundographs are what I imagine the music looks like from the inside, before it is heard—or seen.
