My central interest in making photographs with my family is the different ways we perform for the camera and how our actions are translated or mistranslated into a still image. I’m aiming to make collaborative portraits that seem at once candid and staged, while using domestic and recreational activities as inspiration. When we stage ourselves in front of the camera, regardless of how pre-conceived the idea is, an element of chance always seems to seep in. It is this unexpected symbolism and meaning created between myself, my family members, and the environments we occupy that fascinates me most. How can these photographs accurately or inaccurately reflect our current relationships and how will this influence the way we see each other in the future?
