JAMES SEDWICK, a graduate of SUNY at Buffalo, retired from the practice of psychotherapy in 2015. He lives in South Wales, N.Y. He has photographed since high school and shows his work with the Buffalo Society of Artists, Artists Group Gallery, and Meibohm Fine Arts. In addition, his photographs have appeared in The Sun and Orion magazines, the journals Steam Ticket, LensWork Extended 99, Looking at Images (LensWork Publishing), and have been included in private and public collections. He studied with Andrea Modica, Keith Carter, and Dennis Stock. His work is about growing older yet remaining creatively involved with the world that is close by—a nurturing of hope while being aware of mortality. Although he photographs with a digital camera, he prints his images in the darkroom with palladium chemistry. G.K. Chesterton’s statement informs his work: The function of the imagination is not to make strange things settled but to make settled things strange.
