About Valerie

I have been an earnest photographer for the past 50 years. My professional experience includes 6 years of printing, spotting and quality control at Black and White Photo Lab and Gallery, a custom, traditional film processing and printing lab.

My approach to photography is not academic but rather more visceral. I experience it. I’m attracted to the sense of history found in the artifacts humans leave behind, both the eccentric and the ordinary. Whatever is made out of caring, beauty is to be found there. Composing with a sense of space and respect for my subject is paramount.
