DETAILS:

Either from memory of from prolonged looking I have been making very simple drawings of objects.  These drawn objects are then cut out and used to create a photogram.  Once a drawn shape has been cut out, I am left with both a positive (the shape) and a negative (the cutout space).  In the history of photography one learns of the negative and positive and its part in the earliest invention of the medium.  When making a photogram and chemically processing the print other marks can occur.  Odd lights and darks or print stains seem to add a particular beauty to the print.  Through the combination of traditional drawing and the medium of photography I have created the series Thinking About Drawing of which this image is one. I am absolutely interested in the contradiction of what is commonly considered a photograph.
