While constructing non-figurative self- portraits, I test the possibilities of the photographic apparatus. The use of layered transparencies allows the viewer to peer into the image, while simultaneously denying the gaze through the lack of clear depictions. Performing as photographer and subject I take complete control over the representation of my body and question the fundamental premises of the medium. Does photography’s indexicality allow it to be truly abstract, or will it always remain tethered to reality?
