Artist's Statement:

I am a photographer. -I make photographs and pictures - that depict life cycles. - The camera-eye makes images metaphorically mimicking personal experiences. - The graphic quality of the black and white silver print impresses and expresses - subtle tonal nuances of mystery and luminosity. - I work in the darkroom printing my negatives - and at times on the drawing table adding bits of - color by hand-tinting, extracting, refracting - and reacting. - Some photographs are straight printing.- In others, I combine negatives and use masking,- solarizing, toning, and hand-tinting to make from - the negative, the image I want to see. - I am using a scientific medium to create art. Quotation from Eudora Welty: ‘The camera is about wanting to know. Photography is more than technique. It requires an internal lens. Insight doesn't happen often on the click of the moment, like a luck snapshot, but comes in its own time and more slowly and from nowhere but within. There is outer light and there is inner light. A photographer needs both."

The Art:

Hudson's ability to bring imagery to poetry and poetry to images is her forte. From the whisper-thin strokes of her ethereal visitor Ghost of Westover, and the subtlety of the Latent Spirit to the utilitarian commonality of her hand-tinted fruits and vegetable collection, Hudson's work eloquently speaks volumes.
