BACK BUTTOCK STOOL

Ongoing series started 2016

“Back Buttocks Stool” subverts the tradition of portraiture by focusing on the back. These photographs challenge us to reconsider what parts of our bodies reveal the most about our identity. The backbone is so crucial to our body and the systems that support it, and here it is elevated rather than overlooked. The connotations of having someone’s back turned to you, the trust and intimacy it indicates, lend an emotional weight to these portraits as well. With the figures’ heads down and out of view, they appear at times introspective and at others distraught.
