STING OF TIME, 2022
These are my memories. Places I’ve felt bittersweetness
Moments so peaceful, touched by the fear of its absence
If my body can’t carry me back,
I shall cherish them through and through
Capturing its essence, turning leaves into something new
The process helps me accept the sting of time passing
because limited time is part of what makes life sublime

Honkadori is the result of a combination of two of my favorite techniques; cyanotype and lumen print. With this project I challenge my own perfectionism by experimenting with new materials and embracing the unexpected and ever changing results.
A lumen print is a solar photogram - an image created on photographic paper, exposed by the sun. It began as one of photography’s earliest experiments in the 19th century.
The gallery below features a selection from lumen print series I’ve created.
Cyanotypes are one of the oldest photographic printing processes in the history of photography. The distinctive feature of the print is its shade of cyan blue, which results from its exposure to ultraviolet light. The gallery below features a selection from cyanotype series I’ve created.
