    Throughout forty years of creating photographic images, Katie Fagan has mostly used large format film cameras that produce fine detailed and sharp focused pictures. Recently, she put those cameras to the side, and has been experimenting with vintage box cameras that have plastic lenses, making detail and fine focus impossible. Exploring the visual world with the emphasis on light and place, but no certain detail, has been Katie’s goal. Seeing the world through a lense has always been her means of creating a personal diary, and changing how she Is recording light with a plastic lense brings her to a new place of exploration. For Katie the process of recording light on film and paper has never and will never lose its magic.
