Through the use of light, form and space, my work explores abstraction in photography by challenging the traditional notion that the photograph represents reality. Each work is created in the studio; sculptural constructions and meticulously controlled studio lighting are used to build an installation to be photographed. The constructions only live within the time-lapse of one recorded frame. I strive to create a photograph that requires minimal post-production manipulation. This body of work is characterised by objects moving between illuminated space and dark space. Orchestrated lighting intensifies what is visible, and creates a heightened sense of ambiguity within the composition, challenging the viewer to question what they are seeing, how things might appear, how we negotiate, interpret and give meaning.
