Vault 7These photographs 'stage' the steps of a top-secret CIA document given to covert agents arriving in Frankfurt. The document was released by Wikileaks in April 2017 as part of Vault 7 - the largest ever publication of confidential documents on the CIA. The documents provide a telling insight into the culture among the agency, of the normality and ordinariness of the people that work and operate there. They reveal an almost absurd level of banality, a culture so far flung from our Hollywood influenced; idealised perceptions of what it is to be a 'spy'. Through my photographs, I aim to present and play on the absurdity that the documents reveal; to challenge our conceptions of contemporary espionage - evoking systems of power through the representation of the banal and blending narratives of fact and fiction. The captions serve as excerpts from the released document, 'directing' each individual photograph.
