The space between
In my work as a psychotherapist I have come to appreciate the importance of the space between the therapist and the patient, where the dynamics of the therapy relationship come into play.
As a photographer, I try to explore a similar space co-created in my encounters with the people that I photograph. This is a space where tension builds up, curiosity evolves and a certain kind of experiential understanding may be reached. My intention is to visually capture this space and hopefully engage the viewer in this relational context.
Note: the people that appear in this series are not my therapy clients, and although I may make use of photography in my counselling sessions, I do not involve my clients in my personal artwork.
