I am an artist based in Manchester England, currently completing a BA in photography at Manchester School of Art.
Through photography, artist books and creative writing I work with the construction of narratives and lives. Often born from personal experience, this is a way for me to document the changes within my own life, playing with the realms of reality and un-reality.
Within Élise I paint a fragile portrait of a female character through photography and text. Opening the door to private fragments of a life that does not really exist. Text and image come together, when a fractured narrative takes the form of a screen play within the book piece which accompanies the images.
Élise grapples with the expectation of disappointment in a world where she exists, apparently, only for herself.
