Constricted Reality

These portraits are from a series about constriction of breathing and loss of control over my own body due to asthma and general health issues. My models experienced physical disempowerment as they hung upside down. They held their breath for as long as possible and, at the very last second, I captured their involuntary response. The images themselves are displayed upright, giving the illusion of a traditional portrait. But subtle clues - expression, redness or a wisp of hair – reveal the truth of the model’s situation. The metaphor for my own feelings is revealed, drawing the viewer towards the underlying conceptual intention.
