The following is an exploration of time between the only inevitable acts of birth and death. Having been the subject of and an observer to the unpredictable, no-guarantee world we live in, my photography travels beyond notions of a fair existence to probe a deeper intrinsic questioning of society. It interrogates the human condition through people seeking meaning and freedom, while battling loneliness and mortality. It confronts the ways we consider ourselves and treat others. In the web of genetic, environmental, and manmade paradigms that we have created, this work draws on a fascination with what humankind grapples with in their existence, what they attempt to achieve with their time, and the lengths they are willing to go to for this. Driven by personal influence and the context in which I have found myself, this is an ongoing inquiry into the unconsidered and what’s taken for granted.
