Personal Pornographies -series [NSFW]

A curator friend suggested I show a collection of my self portraits recently and it's made me think in depth about self-as-subject and the objectivity/subjectivity of that type of work.  The eroticized depiction of one's self  is a common trope in our digital age but one that doesn't always sit well with out outward façade. This work is about what we keep under wraps, the transparency of our transmissions and our ever mutable sense of self.  The times they are a changin'  and so are we. We are becoming our own pornographies and recontextualizing our naked truths in a new age of consumption.
