This work addresses the balance of power between two individuals invested in each other, emotionally and contractually bound. In collaborating with my husband in a series of conceptual photographs I construct images that address the struggle for control in our relationship through 'tests' of love and endurance agreed through trust, negotiation and compromise. Aggressive, yet playful and humorous, I explore the power dynamics between husband and wife whilst also testing the boundaries of photographer and sitter.
I am interested in who plays the role of dominant or submissive and how these change or blend depending on circumstances. Through the work I express adoration and celebration of him physically, exploring materiality and his external surface, whilst he demonstrates his devotion to me through suffering mild discomfort and humiliation.
