While attending  a workshop in Santa Fe in 2012 I was gifted a toy plastic lens by Cathy Cone after admiring a portfolio of her prints produced with this lens. The toy, plastic Diana lens used in conjunction with a digital camera body (hi-res low fi) imparts a soft, impressionist quality, not fully sharp or in focus with occasional diffuse haloed edges that glow seductively. An air of mystery and intrigue is added, imparting a slightly off-kilter sense of fiction, stories that welcome further exploration and thought.

These images are a part of my ongoing ‘Modern Landscape’ project that incorporates different series of photographs taken while on road trips, both near and far.
