"us, in part" is a meditation on the body and on photographic representation. I create these images through multiple exposures, physically masking the negative to hide and reveal certain parts of the body. In my process, I am interested in the unexpected connections that are formed between people, creating a new form of portraiture that aims to slow down the way we process photographic information.
