Scars

In this very early series I used a 35mm film camera to photograph body scars of friends and acquaintances. I found scars particularly fascinating because they are permanent physical documents of a moment from the past, and they can often be very complex, intimate, or even symbolic. For that reason, I then saw them as analogous to a photograph, which creates an interesting dynamic between the subject of these images and the photographic medium that I used to document them. These images were made as both an examination of indexicality and of the human experience. The images below are a select few from the series.
