Through photography I have aimed to maximise the expressive qualities of my subjects by removing from them the limitations of gesture or pose. The strength of the images is based on isolation, magnification and framing, causing the images to be interpreted as more than just a hand. By changing the scale of the images, and showing them much larger than you might expect and also changing the context of the images, the perception of them is also changed, having an altered impact on the audience. The photographs are reduced almost to the point of abstraction; I have created images that still have an air of humanity whilst also being reminiscent of natural scenes or landscapes. By stripping the subjects of gender, class, culture, sexuality these paradoxically invite questions about precisely those issues.
