About ‘Island’:

Those portraits revel in a strikingly stark beauty which echoes Coney Island’s deep-lodged atmosphere of despondency. In many of the pictures, I was attempting to describe my own initiations up until adulthood and my own suffering. By doing this I was examining other peoples suffering, and trying to show that we are not that different as people once the vale of ego is taken away. The project is about culture and about being human, that we are all one and more connected than we realise.
