A Multimedia Traveling Exhibition

There are 55 portraits and 55 audio stories. Mounted below between each portrait is a wooden box containing a CD player and instructions. The viewer can listen to each story with headphones. The stories range from 4 to 6 minutes each. Many sites have used this exhibit as the centerpiece for related programming including panel discussions, lectures and student field trips.


Photographs & Audio

All photographs are made using an 8 x 10 view camera. Photographs are black & white warm toned silver prints. Each image is enlarged and mounted on 24" x 30" archival board.

Audio narratives are recorded on a digital format and edited and mastered using Pro Tools and Bias-Peak and Deck software. I met with each person over a period of days or weeks. The stories were edited from multiple interviews with the approval of each participant.


Optional Easel Installation where site does not have gallery space and lighting:

"Fine Line" can be installed almost anywhere. Fifty-five easels have been specially constructed for this exhibit. They have been designed to hold the photographs, lights and audio components. With the optional easel installation, the exhibit can be installed in schools, libraries, community centers and galleries.


Space Requirements:

Each portraits with its accompanying wooden box and CD takes approximately 5 running feet. The ideal space for walls and easel installation is between 175 to 300 feet. Venues with smaller spaces can use the easel installation which can be installed around and through the room. The minimum space requirement is approximately 150 feet.


Installation Time:

Museum & gallery installation takes approximately seven/nine hours with four people assisting.

Optional easel installation for sites that do not have gallery wall/lighting space takes approximately four/six hours with five to seven volunteers assisting.
