After taking my first photography class I had to have my own darkroom. Then, following an immersion in B&W photography, I began a graduate program in art history. This endeavor took me to Italy and the study of ancient art. Due to the constraints of time and energy, I began to carry color film only but took advantage of the image-rich environment to capture the visual feast before me. Fifteen years ago however I came back to the satisfying work in the darkroom with black and white film and paper, creating images in a pool of light-sensitive emulsions.
