The Recognitions  |  2004-2005

The Recognitions, is a photographic project which through portraiture brings together a cast of characters that are immersed in their own enigmatic situation and emotional landscape. The solitary figure in each photograph offers a pensive gaze and subtle gesture that attempts to reveal a psychological state or intimate moment. Through, physiognomy and expression, each subject is depicted in their imagined world, enacting their own quiet drama, which has left them disturbingly calm, and comfortably numb. The narratives are malleable, but through an emotive atmosphere, elucidate the complexities of self-awareness and play with the sitters’ psychology. This series is about hope, desire, failure, solitude, daydreaming and contemplation.
