Not Made in China
This body of work challenges the preconceptions that the photograph used as a document is always a true representation of its subject. Through the use of the universal language of the snapshot aesthetic the viewer is lead to believe the photographer is located in China when in reality all the images are shot in the UK. This project stems from strong desire to live and work in China therefore acts as a metaphorical bridge between where the photographer currently is and where she desires to be. Not only do these images challenge the history of photography they also highlight the knowledge that inevitably nothing is, as it seems.
