Either You Are Double Or You Are Nothing

Drawing inspiration from Brian Friel’s, Philadelphia, Here I Come!, my work explores the relationship between our public and private selves. I am concerned with examining how we operate in public as opposed to how we function in private, and how these two personalities act as an interface. Working through collage, using my own landscape photography and illustrations, I attempt to highlight the instant-capturing and mass-producing properties of photography for the distribution of pornography, in contrast to the careful and laborious mediums used in art most commonly found in the home.
