Description

In Members Only I photograph members of groups I do not belong to either because I do not qualify for membership or because my ideology or lifestyle differs from theirs. They are photographed alone in their own environments isolated from the groups that define them, encouraging the viewer to consider them not just as representatives of their groups but more importantly as individuals. The series raises questions about the creation, definition and perception of social identity. It is also a self-portrait in which I define myself by negation.
