ARTIST STATEMENT: Even in my youth I tried to produce artistic photographs, always with the idea that photography is most creative when it adds to the subject rather than just copying it. With the advent of digital imagery, this impressionist attitude can be realized with a mixed-media approach that merges in-camera effects, computer imaging, and printing processes. The infant image may start in the camera, but the final result is a one-of-a-kind original that is produced individually. --- Don O. Thorpe
