The Treatment Room Series (color images)

The Psychiatrist’s office is an intimate place
with a mystique of its own. Having practiced clinical
social work for 35 years, I am familiar with the field both
as a clinician and patient. Drawing on these perspectives,
I explore these spaces and their meaning
with my camera.

The office, as a site for many dramas, functions
as an empty stage waiting for its players. Behind closed
doors I release the shutter, providing visual access
to a world veiled in privacy.

Images (black and white images)

Man is forever confronted with a range of choices between good and evil. In exploring our potential to view our fellow man as "other," I felt compelled to understand our collective "shadow" side. This is what propelled me to visit the Slave Forts of Africa and the Nazi Concentration Camps, places of extraordinary darkness.....

Immersed in the black spaces of the holding cells, the transport cars, and the gas chamber, I was desperate to find any light, visible through a doorway, a ceiling, a crack in the wall ... an attempt to counter the darkness that had enveloped me. These photographs speak to the light in the face of that darkness, and are an effort to memorialize all who have suffered thru out time.

Color images are available as 10 x 15"  pigment prints in editions of 7 for $1100. Black and white images are available as 9 x 9" mixed media (wood, silver gelatin print w/ bees wax) in editions of 3 for $1500 - $2000 framed.
