Manifestations is an investigation into the abstract representation of carnal fears hardwired into the individual. Through the use of chemical bleaching, redevelopment, and solarization of silver-gelatin prints, the original forms are broken down and rebuilt by chance rather than intent. While the evolution of the project has led me to view the final body as glimpses of nightmares, the abstract nature of the Manifestations can appear as a variety of forms, from landscapes to starscapes, dependant on the personal history of the viewer.
