“I’m looking for a new definition of a photographic portrait. I’m looking for people who are surprising - heartbreaking - or beautiful in a terrifying way. Beauty that might scare you to death until you acknowledge it as part of yourself.” (Laura Wilson 2005 p.17)
My work so far
Fear General life to be honest for me is terrifying but exciting at the same time... going to America. … Writing my dissertation, the whole process has been enough to give me nightmares! … I’m really scared I’ll be forgotten. … Exams scare me a touch, as I seem to forget everything I know the moment I walk in there, useful. … I fear that it’s all for nothing. … Where will my wine come from??? … The conservative party … My biggest fear is that no one would miss me if I die.
