Self Portrait, 2009, digital print, 15 x 10

My obsession with photography began with an overwhelming curiosity in the human body. I was enthralled not only by the beauty it possesses, but also with portraying my connection to the person I was photographing. Currently, the psychological uncertainty about my own body is what holds my fascination. In my photographs, I strive to lay bare the array of emotions I experience and convey them to my audience. Recently, I have begun to do this through self-portraiture. I am struggling to overcome a skewed body image; a problem I know that many others face. The fact that my images are easy to identify with is what makes them seem real, even though they are extremely manipulated. Photographing my uncertainties allows me to release some of the tension I feel towards myself. I feel free for a period of time, no matter how short-lived it may be.
