The Catchers

The Catchers stems from an abiding interest in psychological and philosophical disciplines. Committed to exposures of the psyche, the camera is deployed as a tool by which the unconscious or buried ‘moment’ may be unlocked thus enabling significant emotional and mental shifts. The private nature of the photographic studio enables certain revelatory actions, unveiling previously concealed truth. The re-construction of remembered ‘episodes’, be they of the solitary or paired figure, relies on the metaphorical nature of physical posturing. The deliberately destabilized object acts as a conduit for the expression of anxiety, anger and repression. This body of work acts as both an exercise in mourning and the re-negotiation of a rite of passage.
