Cynthia Morgan Batmanis: And If I Do

Cynthia Morgan Batmanis is a cinematic artist, using the night time hours to create her evocative images.  Cynthia also sets the stage using a home that reflects the past as a back drop for her series, And If I Do.  Using historical and alternative photographic processes, her photographs are a natural progression from her other interests of printing and drawing.  Cynthia received her B.A. and M.A from the University of Texas, Austin. Her work can be seen in exhibitions across the country.

For her project, And If I Do, Cynthia created intimate sizes of Ziatypes on salted gelatin Bergger paper.

As people age they redefine who they are to themselves and others. Redefinition becomes especially difficult when cherished family members are facing debilitating illnesses.Constrained redefinition brings about feelings of sadness and loneliness. Despair ensues and coping skills are tested. I decided to photograph a house built in 1870. 

Old houses evoke my past. The memories of families live there. I work at night and occasionally at sunset using any and all available light. My intent is to show the manifestations of debilitating illness on a family. My focus is on a home, a space devoid of family and a confined space filled with lamentable emotion.
