Locke, Melody



For several years, I used only black & white and infrared film, processing my film and developing my silver gelatin prints in a traditional wet darkroom.

In addition to more typical outdoor landscapes, my changing inner-city neighborhood was also the subject of much of my photography.

In 2015, I began experimenting with lumen photography. The use of various props and chemistries enables me to create an alternate, and often abstract, image of my subject matter.
Lumen printing is unpredictable, and although I might have a vision of the end in mind when I start, the results are seldom what I had in mind.

Having lived in Houston since 1969, I consider myself a naturalized Texan. I spent the greater portion of my working career working for software organizations as a technical communicator and content strategist.

I am a long-time student of the Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and have studied darkroom photography since 2007.
