Artist Statement:

 

untitled (body I) is a selection from an ongoing series of gelatin silver prints speaking on the nature of the contemporary moment and the effects on the human condition. This image asks us to interpret our inclinations as a point of connection between, and departure from, one another. untitled (body I) builds upon this concept to navigate our discordant relationship with representation and reality as a means of reconsidering our ultimate philosophical goals. This image investigates the image-making process as a site of dissonance in our interpretation of reality, the process within a darkroom and its dated historic interpretation to contend with individual realities and the seemingly everlasting complexity of the image intertwined with life.
