Cyanotype: Burlington Series
Working with film and alternative processes, I utilize negative space, texture and abstract design as a means of processing the themes of grief and displacement. This series incorporates Burlington's unique lakeside landscape. Since relocating in 2015 I have made multiple exposures of the waterfront with a Holga medium format camera, sometimes superimposing anonymous public art over the landscape to create a double image. Included are the same five images, re-created in different ways, as well as the mistakes I have made along the way. From the beginning to the end of the cyanotype process, I relinquish my sense of control. Mistakes and change are inevitable, and I believe these two things ultimately lead to a deeper sense of acceptance.
