Locating The Personal
‘Locating The Personal’ investigates visibility and colonial alienation within the Black community. A series of self-portraits, these images question the representation of Black women within photography.Exploring the spaces I occupy and generate, confronting the materiality of my hair and body, I created images which blur the lines between the self and the other. In moments of stillness, from milliseconds to hours, I strike a pose and imprint myself onto photographic surfaces. Through encounters with material, I mark my presence. In negotiating between personal levels of visibility, I claim space. As I lie on photographic materials I am brought into focus. Referencing intersections of Race and Gender, the photograph itself is used as a discursive and dynamic space for discourse.
