Body in Pieces
In this selection of photographs, I am exploring the different layers that make up and create the self. The layers that make up who we are can be expressed, hidden and exist unknowingly but are there, nonetheless. With this in mind, I am reflecting on my own being. Photography acts as a tool to help reveal aspects of what might have been hidden before the picture was taken. Each photograph is a self-portrait where I am either confronting myself, re-signifying my body, or interacting in an intimate space. I am often interested in creating an image reminiscent of a dream, or rather the sense of a dream that feels very real. Though the covers of a being are thick and maybe even heavy at times, there is a beauty in seeking, reflecting and discovering what makes us who we are.
