This ongoing project looks to investigates body language and facial expressions in those who think they are unobserved. Chance encounters with strangers are rarely imprinted on the conscious mind - the work was born out of an instinct to try and preserve these encounters through the photographic medium. The voyeuristic element in the work is transposed by the lack of awareness running through the subject. Drawing with light enables the instant capture of such a fleeting moment; a strangers's gaze, or the temporary pose of a family member.
2084 explores the emerging genre of fictive documentary, questioning the nature of the real through a constructed narrative. Working from environmental projections, the series envisions a near future where human intervention has resulted in total animal extinction. Mirroring established traditions in the literary and cinematic worlds, 2084 aims to utilise the photographic medium to enhance awareness of the impact ecological destruction is wreaking on the planet.
