Anonymous; Anomalous

My work engages with the intricacies of the human psyche and probes the mysteries of human relationships. The protagonists are a faceless couple. Their depiction has elements of surrealism and fetish, but most importantly it plumbs the psychology of a relationship between two people. My stylistic intention is to have an extreme “snapshot” aesthetic in order to simulate a dark, somewhat amateur-looking documentation of a domestic lifestyle. The use of hard flash creates deep shadows behind the subjects and also sets up the perfect conditions for a high-contrast, heightened, black-and-white result.
