    Artist Statement

    Cape Lookout is one of six North Carolina lighthouses photographed, along with Todd McLeod, for a series of prints and posters of the historic structures. The Cape Lookout lighthouse sits on a barrier island only accessible by boat. One late Dec afternoon, we hired a guide to take us over and leave us with plans to be picked up the next day. That night we slept in a tent while the wind blew and temperature fell into the 20's. Shot just after sunset on Polaroid B/W instant slide film. A Cibachrome print was made from the slide with the sepia tones added to the print at that time. The Cibachrome was scanned and the digital file processed in Photoshop. The film has since deteriorated and is unusable.
