Whilst navigating through scarred landscapes and solitary figures, a sense of stubborn survival, resilience and unusual beauty begins to form. Scars are the wounds that have been covered-up but have not yet fully healed, much like the emotional scars we carry around, weighing us down on a daily basis. When examined individually, the images are in themselves documentary photographs, as the people and places really exist, but as a whole, the work is closer to fiction. I create images for myself, to identify with my understanding of reality and to express my own interpretation of the world around me whist allowing others to engage with the work. I identify more with my own awkwardness and vulnerability in my subjects.
