Social interaction lies at the core of my staged tableau photographs. I am preoccupied by how people treat one another within society, especially strangers in public. In particular I find the generic roles that people adopt in various social situations fascinating, and thoughts about how such skills may be learnt, rehearsed or inherently acquired even more so. The analogy of 'Life as Theatre' offered by some sociological approaches resonates within my work and the aesthetic of an ambiguous rehearsal refers to our 'stage-management' of social situations.
