I’ve moved on to research photographers that create their own staged situations, involving the subject/s undertaking a role that the photographer has given them/ isn’t already there. Photographs that were made consciously, on purpose with specific choices; creating the event, the situation, the environment and the emotion. This is a move away from the photographing that I have been doing in which I have been photographing existing staged situations.
A constructed reality, a pseudo-reality that questions aspects of the world that we live in.
I plan on either creating staged situations of everyday life, considering the relationships and emotions contained within situations. Or I may take the existing type of situations that I’ve been photographing and simply place them in more natural environments.
