Bodies are ephemeral and the self is imagined. Where do you start and where do I end – are these bodies mine? Is this body yours? I believe life and death both are sensual and repulsive. An embodiment of the two adjectives themselves, they see them as inexplicably intertwined at every crossing – inseparable, desirable, disgusting. Absurd. Confused. My photographs poke and prod at the idea of artistry’s vulturous hunger for the exploitation of suffering in exchange for cultural relevance while simultaneously feeding into and taking part in this venal communion. My photographs draw on the indexicality and perceived truth value of photography to transform and enrich the world we live in. I create in an effort to morph my surroundings into ones more in line with my surreal and layered inner existence.
