PRIVATE

Foreword:
Celebrities surround us. They are everywhere we go. In the papers, online and in our social media feeds. They become such a familiar part of our everyday lives that we feel as if we know them. When, in fact, we only really know them through their photographic images. [...]

In my work I use cleverly crafted actors and celebrity lookalikes to create images that pose fundamental questions about where the truth ends and lies begin. The line between what is real and what is fantasy has never been more blurred. My photographs seek to explore the gap between the two, if only for a second, bring it sharply into focus.
