Kristen Pless works in the traditional Platinum printing process – giving her photographs a rich physicality. When taken together with her careful placement choices in the gallery, the exhibit becomes an installation experience for the viewer.
"Fundamentally, I am interested in how photography can serve as a link between our subconscious and conscious experience. I am curious about the tension that exists between these realities. In the work I create, my motivation is not to pre-visualize an image, but to record the environment around me. It is not aimed at capturing an exact representation of our surroundings, but at observing an atmosphere or emotional presence within a space." - Kristin Pless
