Tensions

Tension 1 – Lynda

“Tensions is an ongoing series of diptychs dealing with suburban angst, societal anxiety and scenes of a domestic nature. Each “Tension” will consist of one constructed portrait and one tableau still life.

Inspired by the films of Douglas Sirk, Harmony Korine and David Lynch the series aims to create an unsettling but essentially banal set of images. The work will also focus on humanising female vulnerability whilst utilizing photographic techniques commonly associated with objectification and exploitation.

“The essential tension in a story lies elsewhere. Not so much in the mystery of its destination as in the mystery of the spaces between its steps towards that destination”

John Berger – Understanding a photograph”
