Girl interrupted captures the fragility of the fleeting window between a girl’s childhood and adolescence through her relationship with dolls.
The self-reflective lens portrayed in the doll’s faces grabs our attention and creates a narrative between the girl and her doll. As an unseen witness or interloper, we observe the emotions and physicality between the two characters. While told through the colours and imagery of classic young femininity, the images have an uncanny quality, suggestive of something more sinister or unsettling.
The work is equally beautiful and unsettling: it fulfils the expected stereotype of girlhood and then subverts it.
This exhibition is outdoors. Please check what COVID-19 restrictions are in place before you visit.
As a photographer I am eclectic – I have photographed weddings, newborns, nature and lifestyle images across natural and studio settings. My favourite style of photography is staged portraiture which allows me the most creative freedom in my work.
I am inspired by movies, especially from directors, such as Guillermo Del Toro, Tim Burton, Bradley Buecker, Jordan Peele, and more, with their gorgeous visual narratives. Many of my ideas come from horror (I’m a big horror fan!). I love visuals that create conflict – visually beautiful yet thought-provoking images that make people go back for a second or third look. I try to create this in my own work.
