Dorothy K. Magadieu

I live in the Boston area and work primarily in traditional black and white photography. Recently, I have been experimenting with the alternative process of mordancage, using photographs that I've made while traveling. Experiencing unfamiliar customs and cultures is always of great interest to me. Travel heightens my awareness of the way we all work to create for ourselves a comfortable space in the world. I find that no matter how the conditions of our lives differ, our human bond is evident in the ordinary rituals of daily routine, in what we create and what we discard, and in the mementos that we keep and treasure. My subject matter may be diverse, but in all of my photographs, appreciation of a shared humanity is the underlying theme.
