Bonnie Dolin

"The city has been my subject matter for the last several years, I am not particularly interested in specific places, but the general industrial areas and the houses in those neighborhoods. My interest in the houses stem from the time I spent in Cape Cod, photographing the houses there. They were the subject of a great deal of my work for a time. When I returned to Cleveland I often photographed the view from my studio windows that overlook an old commercial and residential area ending at the shores of Lake Erie. Many of the houses in the area remind me of the cape house that I grew to admire. The changing light, color, and weather of this place are an inspiration."
