During my professional career, I was fascinated with the mind's agility in processing and interpreting sensory information. As an artist, I continue to explore the different ways in which the mind perceives the world around it and how the accepted norms can be challenged by creativity, curiosity and a camera. Much of my fine art photography has centred around creating what I refer to as Light Tapestries. Centuries-old architectural structures, with their dim interiors pierced by beams of exterior light, are transformed into a type of natural camera obscura, which becomes my studio. The interior walls form the canvas; the exterior landscape, the subject and palette; the hand held camera, the means; and a creative imagination, the vision. This emulsion of past and present, time and place, challenges the mind's interpretation of what it sees. Toned silver gelatin is the chosen printing medium as it is a process first introduced in approximately the same time period, the late 1800s, as the building of the heritage structures named in this series.
