Photographing Navasota

Coming to Navasota from Houston, I had some plans for what I wanted to photograph during the residency, but knew very little about the town itself. Upon actually coming here, I became fascinated with the historic buildings, and particularly, the churches. The variety of stained glass they contained, both old and new, traditional and more contemporary, drew  my attention. In my senior year at Rice University, I created a photo series called Set In Stone, made up of photographs of thin-sections of rock printed on transparency and mounted in custom frames that backlit the images. One of the most common comments I received from those who viewed it was that they looked like stained glass. Moving onward from that project, I continued to work with transparency, and Navasota’s churches provided a perfect subject to utilize the medium. I already have a few pieces showcasing some of the stained glass and churches in town on display at the Horlock House, but I have many more in the works. Stop by and take a look!1K0A7270IMG_9499
