This series of portraits, ‘Silence Within’, was inspired by my own memories of being alone, loneliness a constant throughout my childhood regardless of my surroundings. I did not know at the time what loneliness was or that it was what I was experiencing. It is sense of isolation I aim to explore and portray in my images.
My subjects act as mirrors of myself, portraying my own memories and emotions which are however not unique to me, observed in others daily basis. Unable to visualize these emotions in myself, I use others the subjects to create this psychological space, creating narratives that tell the viewer more about the artist than the sitter depicted. Through my images I attempt to explore ideas of loneliness, sadness, freedom, silence and boredom. The psychological feeling of being alone and the physical state of being alone coexist in my images. My photographs allow me to recollect my memories through revisiting the past. This reappearance and recreation is a crucial element of my work.
My series not only aims to express present social issues and problems extending beyond myself, whilst also being autobiographical and personal. In addition, my series emphasizes the representation of social transformations a loneliness become a more and more common feature of modern eye and in the future.
