Subordinate
Project info

The included images, which aim to demonstrate, whether actually or conceptually, the daily collisions between one's inner private self and the everyday reality of urban city living, form part of a project intended to explore the metaphors associated with this tension: vulnerability; alienation; subordination; fear; threat; isolation; infringement; and intrusion. However as the project developed, some wider questions arose regarding the tripartite relationship between victim, perpetrator and image maker and in particular the nature of the photographer's participation and whether as documentarian, witness, narrator, facilitator, voyeur, conspirator or a combination of these roles. Ultimately this project is about this threefold dynamic.
