Social Work surveys the vernacular of highly imaged groups wherein the playfulness of the photograph edges closer to highlighting the façade undertaken by different communities. Interested in highly characterized subjects, the work explores the quotidian details of Americana. I observed various groups and explored the spectacle as it relates to the performative nature of belonging to a community. My view on reality is open to articulation wherein my studio lighting merges fiction and reality. My goal is not to reveal from these groups what isn’t already known but rather to further illustrate their own constructed image. The role of my camera is to represent, abstract, and reimagine.
