In the photographs I create, images appear to derive more from dreams than reality. With the use of rich colors, dark settings and surreal environments these painterly portraits are built into narratives exploring themes on death, obsession, anxiety, solitude and escapism. These themes are then constructed into archetypes. Creating a world which bridges the gap between what seems impossible or fantastical into stories that are real and tangible to the viewer.
The use of objects and items within the work tend to stray from their intended use. Emotional tension expressed by concealed faces add mystery and allow the viewer to project their own interpretations of who the subject is while chosen unordinary camera angles convey intimacy and voyeurism.
Likened to haunting yet beautiful films or dark fairytales, the work aims to pose questions between our reality and imagination, infatuations and compulsions that often are born from our minds.
