N.2PLAIN BROWN WRAPPER(2013–Current)
A childhood diagnosis of red-green colour-blindness engendered a lifelong fascination with the relationship between reality and perception. For various reasons, biological or abstract, the distance between the two can be vast. Photography is well-suited to explore this dynamic; the film’s purpose is to capture a reality, or a truth—however, each step in the process can be manipulated to alter the final product. This work offers a tongue-in-cheek exploration of the medium and its ability to create fictional realities. This work explores the interplay between reality and imagination, and how the manipulation of one aspect can move an image further along the spectrum in either direction. In essence, these images become representations of fiction rather than fact. In doing so, both the medium and subject work together to legitimize their respective falsehoods, and the line between reality and imagination blurs.
