PORTFOLIO > IMPACT

The series Impact is a set of photographic images of bullet shrapnel that has derived from criminal activity. The bullets have been gathered by police forensic teams in a variety of ways ranging from being extracted during autopsies or removed from a bulletproof vest after impact.

Impact makes use of forensic interpretation, narrative and visual arrangement to press questions about an implied scenario. Using imagination to expand the borders of the photographic image this series confronts the audience with the direct results of gun crime. The images give life to an object that once identified acquires a new form that evokes violence, intimacy and meditation at the same time.

Looking at these images, the viewer is reminded of the broader context of gun crime, not through reports of bloody violence but rather in the textures and details that constitute the individual narratives locked away within these images.
