Blind represents a personal experience of disassociation and explores the act of photography becoming an extension of that experience, a coping mechanism with which an attempt to make sense of the world can be made. My feeling is that we live in a dissociative era; dissociation can be defined as the disruption of consciousness, identity, memory, physical actions and/or the environment. Often the ubiquity of social media is blamed for this, but I believe it to be a far more insidious problem. For me photography has a phenomenological capacity, allowing you to stop, think and consider your place within the world. The blinds in my images act as screens that can reveal or conceal, emphasising a disjunction between foreground and background, akin to the moment of perception, and the taking of the photograph itself.
