statement

During a year-long trip in Hungary I started a new photo series called Fracture Analysis that explores the collaboration of the body and camera as witness. I’m specifically interested in the effects of history within our bodies such as trauma and national identity. Through the conscious misuse of my iPhone camera, I'm looking at identity construction in history and current times. The resulting fractured photographs witness not only the fractured present but myself behind the camera that becomes an integral part of this construction.
