Lisa Tyson Ennis Biography

Lisa Tyson Ennis shoots what the eye can not see. Over time, with extended exposures, film is able to collect the changing light. As light passes across the landscape, the film gathers a composite of light as it travels with time.

It is this resulting quality of light that so interests her and which seems to suggest a certain timelessness.

Ennis works solely with historical processes – large and medium format cameras, black and white film, handmade toners and oil paints. In the field, she works in extremely low light situations, searching for that ethereal but fleeting unison of light and landscape which appears simultaneously both representational and symbolic. In the darkroom, Ennis hand prints each piece, painting with light to enhance and intensify the image collected on the film.

By seeking subjects that are visually quiet, the quality of the light itself becomes a large part of the subject and the essence of the piece.
