Animalis is the latin word meaning, "to have breath" and is the word from which we get the English word animal. With these images my intent is to show that by manipulating the film grain via bleaches and multiple development baths, with brushes and toners I can achieve a unique type of mark. My goal is to link the world of drawing and the world of photography in these images. I want them to be part document, part cave drawing and part dream. In the best of these images (see the detail shots)I want the viewer to be able to draw a visual link from the first marks made by humans to the dawn of photographic representation. As in all my work I am in effect attempting to mine the spaces that exist between photography, drawing, science and religion.
