Emotions within us are manifest in momentary glimpses of the lives of others and can be an exploration of the limits of ourselves. Exploring the complex nature of our emotional world offers hope and empathy to others. We are mostly exposed to similar emotional experiences, it is how we deal with these emotions that define us as individuals.
We are accustomed to a particular entrenched visual language but these are not natural rules, they are inherited. The landscape has been hijacked by an historic and contemporary aesthetic infecting the interpretation of the world. This customary framework that now contextualizes events for us, subjugates our responsibility for its content.
My images are carefully planned and overtly deliberate constructions where conventional consideration is not given to narrative representation. Compositionally, it is a distorted and prejudiced view on display; an exposed infection of the personal experience. The intention is to explore the complexity of the human experience without solution and in its most general sense experimental & accidental as it reveals itself to the camera.
I am currently interested in the presence of the unknown or unseen; the detachment of our modern selves from our natural instinctive ‘creature’ and the irrational fear as a consequence.
