Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.

Graciously infused with movement, Sense of Self is a series of expressive, conceptual self-portraits. Using movement and light to create a blurred, diffuse quality, I confront my own vulnerability, as well as my attempts to create a sense of order from the natural chaos of personal environment and emotion.
Intimate and evocative, the luminous images expose the attempt to shape boundaries in my life. I focus on capturing my innate need to grid, sort, map, and control – as well as a potent dichotomy - my desire to escape from oppressive, constraining self-regulation.
I shot these images after photographing environmental portraits of others, images that tapped into the subjects’ rich psychology. Through this series, I sought to visualize my personal zeitgeist and my own self-identity.
