‘Envy’ is an exploration of my relationship with my surface. As a photographer, I often find myself in awe of the beauty of my subjects, how versatile their look is, how unique their face, how striking their eyes. Even though what I am photographing is not them but the characters that I specify for them to play, I become envious of them. I want to be them. When I see myself, I see all that is wrong with me. I place myself under a microscope and scrutinise my whole surface. This piece visualises how I can place myself with them despite my flaws.
