Photography, Political / Social, Digital, Photographic paper, 29.7x21x1cm, 2011
The public perception of a person is one thing; the private person can only be guessed and imagined. How we wish to be seen and how others see us; often at odds. It is this tension between both worlds that I have explored, particularly the notions of observation, perception and expectation.

My work takes the ordinary everyday domestic tasks and elevates them to another level, another way of seeing, a performance, a narrative. The process of control in my work is important. I use the still and moving image, using self timers and captured footage. The filming/shooting is about setting parameters and freefall, but the edit function is about control.
