Photographs by Jenny Lynn. Introduction by Richard Burgin. Essay by Virginia Heckert.
Philadelphia, 2004. 48 pp., 67 color and black-and-white illustrations, 9x12".
I think of my work as visual poems - - realms in which I explore the interplay between dream and reality, chance and design, word and image, and collective and personal consciousness. Drawing upon my backgrounds in painting, photography and film, I like to use everything in my art. I take an intuitive, tactile, hands-on approach to my work, mixing careful planning with the accidents that happen during the creative process. It's an active collaboration between myself and the work - the finished image - my end point, then becomes the starting point for the viewer.
