Artist’s statement

Through these photographs I was looking to convey the commonalities and differences in the extent to which people consciously project an image of themselves emotionally and physically, and to juxtapose this with a more severe, though unguarded look at each subject. I arrived at this idea through the refining, stylising and intellectualising of previous, more aesthetic ideas on the relationships between people and through the representation of place, their own selves. The medium employed was chosen as I have had prior interests in photography and chose subjects to whom I am close in order to accurately and effectively portray my intentions.
