STATEMENT: I have loved photography since I was a young girl, and every day for me involves photography in one way or another. This photograph entitled, A Tree in Lewes, Delaware is from my ongoing project entitled Reverie. In this portfolio I capture little everyday moments of time—some images are quite gloomy and others are uplifting but I see them all as positive. An iPhone and various apps have given me back the spontaneity, joy and simplicity of making photographs, similar to those I made previously with a plastic camera and film. This photograph was captured using an iPhone 4S and printed it on Hahnemuhle Bamboo fine art inkjet paper with pigment inks.
