Permanent Self

Permanent Self

2014-2015

Gelatin silver prints on fiber paper, dimensions vary

A series of self-portraits exploring my detachment from both the physical world and my “self” due to trauma at an early age. Each image is manipulated by hand in the darkroom to create a new piece that allows for awareness of illusion, and constructs a more accurate self-representation than a traditional, highly technical image.
