Through multiple and extended exposures, I am manipulating the relationship between the camera and the figure, restructuring time, space, and the internal energies of the human body. My research explores a critique of the medium of photography, using the camera as a surgical tool to deconstruct and reconstruct the human figure, releasing and restructuring internal energies trapped within the body's epidermal barrier. Through traditional photographic methods I create non-existent forms, existing in non-existent spaces, releasing human energies that are un-traceable with the human eye.
