Our lives are formed by the basic principles of cause and effect. We are the byproduct of experiences and the result of consequences. The prominent interactions we have with others develop our character, how we love, why we hate and create impressionable habits that influence our logic. My work is the derivative of my existence, visual documents of observation and the perception of my environment that influence my images.
My fascination with the human form is the amount of abuse the body can endure. I’ve watched people push themselves to an absolute limit, at times to the point of death. During their journey I have observed the transformation of the body and mind to an almost unrecognizable state. In my images I deconstruct the human element to represent punishment brought upon ones self and the experience of loss that can exist in someone familiar.
I use rooms of domestic architecture as a setting from which these images are inspired by. I interpret how these people fulfill their desires behind closed doors in the shadows of isolation, concealing their behavior from others and themselves.
