My series of digital photographs, “objects” focuses on the human body. Through isolated close-up photographs of bodies, this work questions beauty, desirability, gender and representation. I use the inherent descriptive qualities of photography, as well as abstraction, to bring about questions of identity and origin. These fragments of flesh force questions of expectation. Issues of voyeurism are played out through vignettes of once-familiar forms turned strangely grotesque. Seemingly erogenous zones become unclear or completely benign. The possibility that these images may be digitally manipulated mirrors society’s obsession with the practice of cosmetically altering the body to achieve an unattainable concept of beauty.
