My current work is concerned with the outmoded object, its reproduction and the challenging of perceptions through manipulative editing and inconsistent outcomes. A major part of this process is highlighting elements of imagery that we would not normally notice. Most recently this has been through the selection of strangers in the backgrounds of amateur photographs. Through various modes of production, including screen-printing, lithography, digital media and photography I explore how the images I select and edit vary once reproduced, challenging the viewer's perceptions of the image in its various forms and questioning photography as a reliable source. Previous series' of work have involved a similar process, using the mass produced picture postcard, cropping and picking out people caught unintentionally in this well known memento and enlarging them so that they are warped by their mode of production.
