I Feel More Underwater Than
This collection of work explores the complexities of understanding the world and the anxiety of interacting with it. Through these photographs I explore ideas of place, belonging, intimacy and isolation.
My personal experiences are what drive my work, an internally focused examination of self. I create work in pursuit of understanding, a way to explore my thoughts, feelings and experiences. Through looking at the physicality of an interior and the human form,
I seek to embody a mental space in a way that is tangible, physical. In making my work I explore issues surrounding identity, sexuality, gender, queer culture and imagery, as well as intimacy and relationships. Working predominantly in black and white analogue photography I combine traditional methodologies with contemporary subject matter.
