The final images are about reality and imperfection. The colour comes in and out, becoming saturated then drained; the edges sharp then faded; the geometries that I've introduced interrupt the idea of the images as reality but do not fragment the subjects. At the same time, they deconstruct that other reality of perfection which the fashion world exerts. In the end they deconstructed my own death grip on that same perfectionism.
Rather than fixed images I intend them as layered portrayals, still shifting and changing in the light.
