Combining constructed photography and costume making, my work is an ongoing inventory of characters that are assembled, worn and staged for the camera in an expanded and performative approach to image making.

Through the layering act of dress, the body is used as a platform for reinvention, a transposition, the body slowly concealed through disparate materials in order to gradually reveal an Other.

Reanimating popular iconography and myth, the work explores photography’s potential as a prolonged and highly plastic performance, a pliable fabrication, narratives enacted then sealed tight in the image world.

Manicured bodies are reconciled in to constructions of space; hyper real sites that serve as digital habitats for the material body and experiment with the possibilities and potentials of the contrived photographic image.
