Latitude, 2014

After experiencing an act of violence, the question of whether we could accurately recognise integrity in others became a concern I explored.

Latitude is a long exposure, film portrait series. I photographed people in their most comfortable spaces while they were talking to me. It takes time to get to know a person, but even when we take the time to get to know someone, we will never know them completely.

​My photographic process reflects this notion of time, perception and the unknown. Every photograph recorded lasted for the duration of my interview with each person regarding the construct of good/ness in people.

​This series was an attempt to represent each person more fully and fairly while talking, moving and thinking. Ironically, we now see less of them on the surface. We are deprived of their judgeable exteriors and left with an essence rather, surrounded by some details.
