Tina and Geoff, Basildon, Essex, UK
This image is from a collaboration with Geoff and Tina, a lorry driver from Pitsea near Basildon, Essex. My interest is specifically in the transformation; the space between one identity and another.
The collaboration with this subject is an opportunity to explore an existence free from any firm cultural foundations. I am interested in the exploration of moral certainties and this examination of Geoff and Tina focuses on the detail that surrounds established aesthetic and political considerations. It is a discussion on the nature of persona, the possibility of being liberated to form others or to find the courage to face the world as ourselves.
