Breathless  |  2006-2007

The project entitled Breathless proposes to reveal the fragile inner sanctum of my protagonists. I have created images that dwell on introspective poses that carry a disquieting emotional charge, and deal with the fragility of the human psyche. I am interested in imagery that is compelling in its vulnerability and that is imbued with the greatest sensual, physical and psychological presence. The photographs in this series comprise of portraits, still life and landscape probing a range of corporal and cerebral experiences. Breathless is about looking inwards. The ebb and flow of one’s psyche is what informs this body of work, which has allowed me to construct psychological portraits that move beyond the physical properties of the image, into an interior world and more contemplative space.
