About the ArtistWaterman Headshot

For me landscapes have always held a special power. Landscapes have a soul, they hold secrets, and they have the power to inspire the spirit or soothe the mind. Since I was a child a place could have such a power over me that I would sit alone for hours and allow myself to be swept away by its magic.  I love to photograph a landscape, and in doing so I have tried to reach beyond the place to the power and peace within. For the past couple of years I have been working on a landscape series using a toy camera, usually a holga.  The use of this camera gives the effect of reaching past the present, of looking through a telescope to find the essence of the landscape. The use of historic process helps me to slow down the development of the image and allows the heart to break through.
