My work is about a woman who is socially isolated because of her weight.
The cool colours of the photographs highlight her isolation and the loss of her inner world. In my attempt to tell a story I have drawn on cinematic styles that I have loved but also observances of the everyday. It is this that makes my work both real and surreal.
Society generally views the obese person as a ‘loser’. This way of thinking is immoral and damaging and I would like, through my images to help people understand how a plus-sized woman negotiates society's denial of her, and how hurtful that is.
