Familiar Body image

Familiar Body

Familiar Body presents a photographic catalogue of the people who encompass my family – both friends and lovers.  Love is the consistent thematic agent among the images and it helps to articulate their strength, but also their vulnerability.  Masquerading as themselves, the subjects define a vast spectrum of gender performance.  Working mostly in film has grounded the contemporary images within an art historical narrative that predates their exposure, while informing their representational potential within a largely mediated Western society.
