Running on Fumes
This is a personal project in which I hope to demonstrate my perception during the last few months of an addiction to opiates and heroin. It was important to me to convey this experience from a conceptual level as opposed to the hard-hitting reaction grabbing pictures that are usually made on the subject of addiction. I wanted to focus on how it feels to be in this kind of situation rather than what it necessarily looks like. It has been my aim in this collection of work to reflect the mood and emotion of the individual addict and how the details of their environment can come to represent the experience of addiction itself.. Some of the images I have created, for example, are evocative of heroin itself and represent triggers in the environment for its user.
