The series 'I, Narcissus' explores issues of male body anxiety and obsession in contemporary society, whilst 'The Relativity of Grief' looks at the idea of personal trauma and how each individual deals with this differently. Both projects form part of a larger body of work which seeks to reinterpret ancient Greek myths and explore their relevance to contemporary sociological issues. 'I, Narcissus' builds upon the myth of its namesake whilst 'The Relativity...' takes the narrative of Pandora's Box as its foundation. These images blend subtle photo-manipulation with classical natural lighting techniques to create images designed to exhibit the outer strength of each sitter, whilst contrasting this with their inner vulnerability, often revealed by a minute physical gesture or facial expression.
