‘Careful’ describes a persistent undercurrent of apprehensive expectation; an indefinable anxiety where the familiar has become strange and the ordinary is vaguely threatening.
Unplanned and unstaged, the photographs in this series are ostensibly unrelated, made in various locations over a period of two years.
Recontextualised within a narrative, however, meaning can become fluid, and new, more subjective readings can be made.
No longer functioning solely as indexical representations, the images may also find expression in the more elusive context of mood and emotional response; the precise nature of which ultimately concedes less about an objective truth and more about the particular dispositions of artist and viewer.
The project is divided into three volumes or chapters, each anchored at the start by an alternate view of the same suburban house.
