In my new body of work represented here in the Light from Dark gallery, I combine historical references to processes such as daguerreotype and albumen with the classic, old world sepia tint. Another influence are the high contrast presentations found in the art of Renaissance painters such as Caravaggio and his "chiaroscuro" style.

My images in each gallery explore the bounds of computer processing and the "dry dark room", reflecting the low key or traditional beauty and grace of earlier art forms. © Ira D Thomas
