Yucca on Hillside

Artist Statement:

“Yucca” and “Yucca on Hillside” were photographed on a quiet, scenic Figueroa Mountain near Los Olivos, CA. They were taken with a Santa Barbara lensless pinhole camera on 4 x 5 film. I spritz, splatter, and brush cyanotype solution onto 100% cotton paper and after exposing and processing, recoat the same way with van dyke solution. They are exposed outside in the beautiful California sunshine in my garden. I toned these prints in the same carefree way with a little tea and some laundry powder. When you look at my photographs I just want you to feel good . . . with a smile on your face or peace in your heart and that’s it.

Low Tech will be showing at the Center for Fine Art Photography through the month of October.
