On her Eden series: "The images from Mississippi and Louisiana which are included in this series are places I see almost everyday. They are from my garden, the end of my block, around the corner or a short drive away. Images that we may not take the time to notice but by chance. Then an early morning fog, a storm moving in, or the dappling of the last light of Fall moving through the woods isolate the image and lead us to view the mystery of forms without comment. The atmosphere transforms these very ordinary subjects into something quite extraordinary".
Silver gelatin and hand-coloring on various paper sizes.
