Margaret Ann Withers :: Curious Landscapes

Photo's of women in the Technology industry who are in the process of getting US citizenship via H-1B visas. In camera, double exposure, converted to B&W and mirror etched so that the viewer's image merges with the photo.

While on a residency at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA in September of 2016 I explored an abandoned marble quarry and it's tributary.  These are photomontages of that trip.  

Time Redeemed

The transformation of history...occurs in moments of immediacy. It blasts particular moments of the present and past out of the linear sequence and presumably the order of fate. -Walter Benjamin

I used to take night shots with Kodachrome slide film.  The colors you would get from the long exposure were always a surprise for me, they were dense in color and mysterious in shape. These photo's are a modern digital take on a long exposure night shot.  All  of these photos were shot in the NYC subway tunnels.
