What Lies Within
Type C photograph
My body of work explores the way suffering can disturb and distort one’s interpretation of the world. While black and white film offers a fixed, unmanipulated depiction of a scene, the photograph represents a mind in turmoil and it is subconscious memories, even those we hope to forget, which decipher its meaning. Just as Walker Evans sought to depict ‘human dignity and resilience in the face of adversity’, I too hope to capture the human response to psychological adversity.
