from the conceptual series i fell from a great height
as exhibited in AddON exhibition-HeadOn photo festival Sydney 2012
Exploring the multi-layered complexities of the human personality, and variations of perceived identity & emotive responses.
How do we see ourselves? How does our perception of ourselves & others change according to our beliefs, experiences & relationships?
These questions & analysis form the foundations of the framework for this series of self-portraits. Relating to both personal & societal perceptions of, and responses to, sexuality, identity & grief. As the narrative for this series, my aim is to combine these elements in the hope of taking my observations of strong & often complex emotions and thought processes into forming a challenging & thought provoking connection with the viewer.
I realized that using me as the subject was the strongest and most honest way of projecting & portraying the elements and emotion necessary, this made the use of self portraits a natural process for this series.
