Often, when I do a series, I discard many photos.
It’s too disturbing. Or ‘a bit too much’. Or not powerful enough, or whatever. I end up discarding many incredible images.
I found these ones, from my series ‘refuse’, based on many of Foucault’s text on power. In 2014 I went through a black bag phase, fascinated with the nature of the plastic, the way it stretches, they way it’s fragile and can tear easily but at the same time keep things contained.
Here are some images I decided not to put in the series. I like the way my flesh appears super red. The contrast between flesh and plastic.
