A questionable position by default
My practice focuses on the analysis of what an image represents and what it is telling us about our position as viewers. I work across fiction and documentary, building narratives through the construction of highly staged photographs of actors and/or real scenarios populated by non-actors. The representation of the real and its further reconstruction are key elements of my field of enquiry. These combined images aim to produce narratives where the line between realism, fiction and the theatre of life is blurred, questioning our perception of the "other" and ourselves. In researching power, control, gender and their performativity I have structured a body of work that plays upon the artifice of the traditional models of hierarchy, the white male position and its translation into imaginary. Concepts such as otherness, exoticism and sexuality are recurrent themes in my work.
