The author

I have had a love for portrait photography for a long while now,
devoting most of my free time towards it as a hobby and
hopefully, one day, a career. I have several portfolios including
self portraiture, studio work, natural light photography
amongst others, (which I can provide upon request). I Achieved
a Band 6 in Visual Arts for my HSC in self portrait photography,
and was chosen to have my artwork displayed in the
Hazelhurst Regional Gallery after successfully being selected
for ART EXPRESS.

Project details

Overview

“love, its absence in society, and why i'll never achieve it” is a story about my developing and fluctuating mental health. I developed my original concept in late 2018 whilst I was in the process of being diagnosed with depression. Thanks to treatment and medication, my point of view on both society and my own physical form has changed. As I took these images, I meticulously and self-consciously curated my appearance using a wired connection from my camera to my laptop, which I then remotely controlled via my phone. I have created these pieces as a freeze-frame of my fluctuating mental state throughout my artistic practice and process. The wall display paired with the photobook provides two unique story experiences, linear and nonlinear. My wall display shows the varied range of emotional states I experienced. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LuMKPEQW74XH4tsK6qIVMnI2LWLqLxbb/view
