When creating the series ‘WOMAN’ I was thinking a lot about how we perceive beauty in society and perhaps whether this obsession with the beautiful was a little dangerous. To make the images I photographed women on 35mm monochromatic film and then used fire to distort and warp the negative. I wanted to demonstrate the reckless side of beauty and how damaging the effects can be. I printed through these in the darkroom. Each time the negative is handled it partially breaks away or changes. Each image is therefore unique and can’t be recreated, like every woman.
