Glenn Caley Bachmann
I’m a San Francisco flâneur who enjoys noticing and finding odd beauty in things that most people overlook. I tend to shoot in natural light, and am endlessly fascinated with the interplay of light, color, shape and texture. I’m at home in the urban landscape, and find pleasure in dramatic shadows, weird juxtapositions, and weathered things that have been lived in and left behind. My camera is often my eyes as I explore.
Lately I’ve been combining digital photography with mixed media and some elements of assemblage. Beginning with a recent trip through Italy, an occasional photograph will beg to be rendered in a more 3-dimensional, layered fashion, opening up the image in tactile and spatial ways. Working with found objects and tactile materials is satisfying, and engages my love of carpentry and problem solving. Hopefully for the viewer it conveys a sensual experience; a sense of being inside the picture.
I also have a background in multimedia and in graphic design. I make my living as a digital archivist, and am rarely seen in early mornings.
