E=MC2 is a dialogue of the duality of the photograph and photography itself. By using a pseudo-scientific approach, the inherent technical abilities of the camera, and the inherent unpredictable random nature of the subject, to investigate the optical unconscious within ephemeral events and exploring how chance can influence the outcome. I have ventured to show the 'double edged sword' that the photograph is, in that it has both technological and conceptual connotations. Depending on the viewer's interpretation it can be a document, accurately recording a precise instant in time, or an image, showing an authors' artistic intent, it can even be both at the same time, holding equally an explanatory function and an authorial voice as Terry Barrett would say.
