Just over three weeks to go until I arrive in Costa Rica. I am so excited and even a little nervous. I have been busy getting everything together. There is a lot of prep work that I have to do in order to be able to create what I want. I have been making digital negatives to create my gum bichromate and cyanotype prints. I love these methods because they do not require a darkroom, just some chemicals and the sun. I also plan on continuing my Lumen print series. The conditions in Costa Rica are a lot different than they Bay Area and I think I can get some really great images with the humidity and sun.
In addition to getting ready for the residency I have also been working on a couple of shows. Currently I have new pieces in exhibits at Works Gallery and Kaleid Gallery in San Jose.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this project. It really means a lot to me and I can’t wait to continue to share my adventure with you.
