I was at the @VonLintelLA Gallery last night, enjoying the nature inspired work of British born artist Susan Derges. Her images are created without a camera, quite photogram-like, including the shadows that occur in nature, among the trees and water under moonlight. Fascinating and inspiring work…and reminiscent of a series I started in 1999 but with an urban New York twist.
The museums that are lucky enough feature her work are the Met in NYC, the San Francisco Museum and the Albert & Victoria museum in London. Go see their collections if you can. If you are in LA, go see her work at Von Lintel gallery while they’re on display.
Here’s one of the images of the NYC series I began in 1999. Dreamy yellow toned images of NYC shot with film and my Canon AE-1. Yes, I cheated a little…I used a camera 😉
This and others in my series are available for purchase -just click on the image above or peruse my website here.

I unearthed several photos from my trip to Europe many years ago. Here’s one of my favorites from Venice, one of the most magical places, I’ve had the pleasure of exploring. You can view others in my portfolio here. Enjoy.
I walked around the Queen Anne Day festivities and found myself entranced by the little ones waiting outside of the bounce house. They were waiting oh-so-patiently, so earnestly, for their turn at what seemed to be ultimate joy. Suddenly, I yearned to jump in the bounce house, too. Then I realized, aren’t we all yearning for our turn in the bounce house?
