This year two of my images had the opportunity to participate in the 7th Annual Somerville Toy Camera Festival in Massachusetts. They were displayed at the Brickbottom Gallery from September 5th through October 5th. Both images were created with my Holga on medium format film. I truly wish I was able to attend the festival and view all of the artists’ work in person. I would like to thank juror Gordon Stettinius for including my work in this exhibition, the folks at Brickbottom Gallery for being such hospitable hosts, and everyone who keeps STCF going strong.
This first image is titled Low Tide. The second image is titled Columbia Slough. Both images were created on the Columbia Slough in Portland, Oregon during different times of the year. Now that I live in a place that experiences seasonal shifts I find myself exploring and revisiting locations to document what their existence looks like throughout the year. It’s an incredible thing to watch as the earth sustains water and then the atmosphere quickly depletes that supply, only to cycle back again and again. The trees are full of life only to shed their weight and start all over. What a miraculous thing to witness.
