My thesis began through reflections of physical impression; how can I embody the presence of others through alternative processes of the photographic medium? I am constantly thinking about my personal relationship to clothing within the human experience, the representation of clothing through the camera, and how photography, at its core, solidifies ephemeral experiences. Through traditional and alternative uses of the photographic medium, these works are small vignettes of their ever-lasting imprint on my psyche.
Second hand garments, coated in cyanotype chemistry and exposed to sunlight during an embrace, act as the canvas to receive what is inherently fleeting: the impermanent nature of relationships. The photographs, all shot on medium format film, were made organically through each relationship. They act as an additional personal diary which not only gives further context, but aids me to remember; to help me understand why I am so drawn to archiving these moments, as the complexity of my emotions are constantly changing.
