Film Photography 35mm
'Fracture' photography series draws inspiration from Cindy Sherman, who famously uses herself as the subject of her photography. Similarly, the fracture series serve as an extension of myself, albeit indirectly. By turning fractures into the subject of my photography, I echo Sherman's approach, using my main mediums to explore the complexities of the human experience through an unconventional lens.
Through a seamless blend of ceramics and photography, the 'Fracture' series narrates a single visual story. Broken plates that were once deemed beyond repair are brought back to life through the process of glazing, each one transforming into a new piece of art.
Wholeness and meaning can be found even in brokenness. These once-discarded plates now accompany me on my travels, becoming a focal point of my analogue photography. Each captured moment is one of a kind, etched in time and immortalized within the very fractures themselves.
Sustainability and environmental consciousness are at the heart of 'Fracture'. I believe it is important to show effort on reducing our carbon footprint as much as possible thus, I never discard any of my flawed creations. Instead, through the process of glazing and repurposing, I try to give them a new lease on life, injecting them with new meaning and significance.
Overall, the 'Fracture' photography series represents a powerful fusion of art, sustainability, and the human experience. It celebrates the finding meaning and significance in brokenness.
