Artist’s statement

Fundamental associations is an exploration and commentary on social psychology. In my final years of high school, I grew increasingly aware of the intricacies of people’s interactions with each other. My photographs juxtapose notions of individuality and uniformity, and present ideas on how self-identity and attitudes are formed.

Influencing artists: Jill Greenberg, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Max Dupain, Andy Warhol
