My current photography interests in youth have developed from my curiosity in young peoples emerging identity and personality development in their late teens and early twenties. My previous studies in psychology in relation to personality development and identity have informed this body of work. I have also recently completed a Fine Arts degree with young people as my peers and found it fascinating and rewarding to witness their differences in life choices, behaviors, attitudes, relationships and ways of being. I have made some valuable and long-term friendships during this time. I hope to capture the essence of who they are by careful selection of: characters, pose, background, clothing and facial expression. My work is about the relationship between the subject and, myself as the photographer, and the viewer.
