Conceived as an investigation into the idea of photographic truth and objectivity, the series explores how so-called ‘straight’ photographs can be used both as documentations of reality and – somewhat paradoxically – as means of expression; manifesting a psychological aspect or interpretation that is by nature personal rather than universal.

Unplanned and unstaged, these photographs are ostensibly unrelated, taken in a variety of locations over a period of two years.

Sequenced and recontextualised within an extended narrative, however, the images cease to function solely as photographic representations. Meaning can become fluid, slipping between images to evoke a mood and tell a story—the precise nature of which may rely less on an objective truth than on the imagination of artist and viewer.
