As a photographer, I seek to identify myself in my photographs and subjects. By using my camera as a window between the viewer and my subjects, I attempt to capture them at a point of transformation.
My projects focus on the issues posed by Identity and Image. Having a keen fondness for portraiture and the traditional aesthetics of painting and deriving from my research on absorption and theatricality, I have tried to combine the visual act of seeing and being seen with the psychological influence of the camera as a medium on viewer and subject.
This interplay of relationships between subject, viewer, camera and photographer is what interests me and defines my work as I explore what Arbus describes as the “gap between intention and effect”.
