Staring At The Sun
My current work explores the different ways images can create a dialogue between themselves, and how the written word and images can function outside of their original context, questioning how their meaning can be changed within the photographic frame. I am largely interested in the different ways in which various elements of both the everyday and popular culture can be manipulated through the photographic process. By releasing the subject matter from their context in the real world, they have the opportunity to be interpreted in new ways.
