With peculiar fascination for deconstructing ideas of normalcy, I question the interaction my photographs have with conventional society. By trying to dissect the way we see images and creating images that cannot be viewed in a traditional sense, I question the perception of images and their role within a larger societal milieu. Cultural biases and community norms trammel ones individual expression. My upbringing plays upon my ideals and even personal insecurities of beauty and femininity. By photographing what I envision as a gap in views on gender, family, identity & narcissism I dispute the reality of personal politics and create works that are real in their conception but fake in their perception.
