Seeking Beauty Among Jouissance
Seeking Beauty Among Jouissance shares a glimpse of younger generations today and their relationship with social media. Addressing the idea that we're perceived by the online profiles we continually construct, Paloma Brackston photographs the people closest to her in a way we wouldn't see them online. The project shares a deeply personal view of each person by incorporating a dreamlike, other-worldly quality to get away from the fast pace of the online world. This too explains why Brackston chose to remove herself from the high speed of digital photography and shot the series in medium format analogue; inviting the audience to peer into the most intimate spaces and private moments of those photographed.
