Seizure & Rose

1991-1996

Seizure is a self portrait comprised of three images. For this work a 4x5" large format film camera was set up over a bath tub with the  model posing  under water  holding his breath for approximately two to three minutes. After developing the film I first thought that the exposures where complete duds. Only after making contact prints and showing the images to a friend I began to read the photographs and recognize the model's body parts. Seizure is evocative of experiences I had several years ago. These images led to the development of the Bath Tub series. In Rose the subject is also submerged under water. The images reference the human body and it's parts.
