For this Saatchi Altered States show, I’m using portraits of people in the UK and Mexico. Subjects are seen with their eyes closed, holding themselves in the intimate space between outer and inner identity – their presence contrasting with the implied austerity of passport photography.

The yarn interventions convey a hidden strength derived from openness and exposure, yet a sense of shared vulnerability can be experienced depending on the projected state of mind of the viewer.
