My work explores the physical forms that photographs can take, elevating each image to the treasured status of fine jewellery or exquisite sculpture. Its subject matter engages with the queer gaze, the body, and the experience of vulnerability, touch, and connection. I aim to use a mix of traditional darkroom and more experimental photographic and printing techniques to create a new and exciting body of work that incorporates polished metal plates, fine fabrics, glass, and mirrors. The substrate will be revealed through the ‘white’ areas in the images, leaving the black dots, reminiscent of a halftone screenprint, to create photographs in which the metal glows, the fabric shimmers, the glass disappears, or the mirror reflects the viewer back to themselves.
