Bio:

My practice involves a process of seeking out and representing existing imagery. This often results in a transformation of family photographs. The translation of theses images causes a disruption of the photographic source, and the image becomes infused with memory and past experience. The photographic image is displaced from its origin, which allows a new reading of the subject matter. My aim would be to encourage further interest in these images by altering their presentation.
This editing process prevents the full analysis of the photographic image and is an exploration process that plays with revealing and suppressing the image. Hiding and exposing information is an analogy for how the family portrait reveals the appearance of the past whilst limiting the full experience of it. What is held back is interesting, as this represents the gap between the image in my memory and my lived experience.
