DAVID COLLINS

The objective of the work is to create an immersive experience for its audience that will make them an active voyeur, someone who is overwhelmed and swallowed by the work, and who through their curiosity chooses to look further and see more. The intention is that photography will support the illusion of ‘truth’ evoking empathy from the audience further provoking curiosity.

It is through ‘gazing’ at the series of images that a filmic narrative is built like a scene that lingers. The camera’s ability to capture the essence of time in the work gives the impression that everything visually stands very still allowing for a consuming gaze where the ‘eye becomes a prosthetic device to roam around the image petting and exploring the tactile’ until, the static nature of the bodies transform from erotic into a state of normality. (David Collins, 2011)
