Photography — "Mixed" medium format photography, watercolor and paper collage on panel

Framed in black wood 18" x 18"


jd weiss discusses her work here. 




My goal for each image is to reflect the visual, emotional and visceral impact I experienced when the photograph was originally taken. I am drawn to nature whether it is the open vistas of the ocean or the smallest features in a flower petal, and the mystery in someones eyes. Although, all that I see in my every day experience is part of my palette.


I use 6x6 medium format film cameras that produce negatives with both depth and subtleness. The negatives are scanned and printed with archival pigment inks on cotton rag paper. I have chosen to hand paint and apply collage elements to these images to add what my imagination was seeing beyond what the camera recorded.
