My mid-career work was a self portrait catharsis. As a victim of the fashion industry and a triangulation of other abuse which resulted in 25 years of eating disorders and panic attacks, the work represents a reaction to what I had experienced over many decades. Now in control of the camera, my body and mind, the work explores the perversity of fashion photography, sometimes highlighting its unspoken pornography merge, its perfection model, its youth obsession, coupled with my own new found boldness which now counters any attack with the authentic and original unretouched self. The photographs generally reveal purposeful flaws, a parody of superficial poses and a warped sexuality in an unlikely context. They also portray a freedom of movement, and irreverence which had been frozen in an ice age of my prior fear of existing in a society which values women as currency for the visual psychosexual stimulation they provide. Although some days the photographs are just a snapshot of who I happen to wake up being, a willful child with many faces and forms.
