The lack of color processors in Portland had kept me from making color images for a long time. My desire to work with color took over and so now in almost complete darkness, I am armed in rain gear and a respirator making color photograms by hand. The colors in these images come from breaking white light into the spectrum of color using prismatic materials. I am fascinated by rainbows and their ability to illustrate what human color vision is capable of, its limits and potential.
