On-going print series (2022-), B&W Film, multiple exposures, hand processed



Since moving to Seattle, WA, I have been fascinated by the biodiversity in Cal Anderson park. To make alternative photo-developers more conscious of the environment and the neurotoxins typically in b&w chemistry, I have developed a formula for B&W photo developer made out of an alkaline solution from wild dandelions and plant matter found in the park outside my apartment called Cal Anderson. Cal Anderson is the previous autonomous zone in Seattle. A place of safety and community for Seattleites. A place where the residents come to take care of and preserve the land and one another.


Recipe Formula:

B&W Developer (timings defer based on film):
400 grams of dandelions boiled down in 1000ml ofWater
80g Washing soda
100g Vitamin C Powder
(note: final PH alkaline leve of ~10)

Fixer (timing is 30min-1hr):
1000ml water
500g Salt

Recently, more and more sexual assault victims have been opening up about their experiences and assailants. As a whole nation, we have been dealing with and understanding these power dynamics ingrained in our society that have allowed so many to be silenced and abused. These images are about my own dealings with sexual assault. When I think about gold, I think about power, a stray away from spirituality, and false idolatry. This is an exploration of how this power has affected the way I see myself.
