One Is Not Like The Other

This project explores the theme of identity by looking at my closest relatives and myself. Though I moved towns at an early age the same people have been around me over the years.
These photographs give hints into each person's persona with the differences between the 'copying image' and the 'original' revealing further clues into each person's nature.
The word identity has many meanings, but for me it’s about what makes myself me. Though one may copy those who they are genetically connected to and descended from, individuality will still shine through whether it is via hints or physical differences.

This project was financially aided by the Guernsey Photography Festival, where the project will be shown in June 2011.


Hunting For Bees

Based on the statistic that in Britain we are captured by CCTV on average up to 300 times a day, the work aims to give the subjects back some privacy with the aid of white material. In some scenes they appear alone, though out of shot are busy roads or building sites, whilst the title refers to the 'similarity' of the head covering to the netting which bee keepers wear and the current situation of the disappearance of honey bees around the world - a creature that can be quite strictly controlled.


Reality of Youth Going Backwards in Vain

The philosopher Søren Kierkegaard said that life begins and ends with the individual. During a phase where I could not think of anything other than the meaning of life, I thought that a person’s existence is generally made up of seven major stages. Reality of Youth Going Backwards in Vain visualises this concept and my own potential past, present and future by making myself the protagonist within the photographs. By following the colours of the rainbow and a numerical pattern, this signifies the importance of the number seven within this theory and my own personal connection with it.
