My work examines the complicity of photographs in the perpetuation of hegemonic systems of visual culture. Specifically, I am interested in using images to develop a counter culture.
how photography is used as a tool to instigate desire to sustain capitalist economies? We live in a mass media society where photographs are tools of consumer culture that play a pivotal role within the ways in which we come to understand ourselves and our world socially. I re-present images which instigate desire and prompt interrogations of self-hood presenting them with texts to offer alternative narratives.
The act of seeing and the act of photographing are indivisible.
