Elizabeths photographic platinum/palladium prints have a soft timeless quality. Many of the images appear to be from the 19th century and yet they are fresh.
 
A considerable amount of this body of work gives the viewer a disturbing voyeuristic sensation. Much of the work is based on time and the restraints of time and the wear of time on life.
 
Other than the landscapes this work delves into deep thoughts and fears. It also deals with the conflicts of reality and fantacy.
 
This body of work was created using an 11" X 14"  view camera. She then hand prints in platinum & paladium. This old technique helps create the confusion of time in the work. It makes the viewer wonder if these images are from the past or the present. Getting the viewer to wonder and think and even fantasize is the goal of the work.
