Digital Photography, 2014

Obscura examines the relationship between the photographer, the camera, and the space that the photographer occupies. With the rising presence of the camera, the photographer’s attention shifts from their subject of interest to the interaction with the device itself. This presence usurps the photographer’s literal surroundings, replacing the reality of the experience with this new relationship.

These images are not composited; they are only manipulated to the extent of voiding the surrounding environment beyond the natural positions of the photographers and their cameras within the frame.
