Objects of Desire

This is a photographic project with 3-dimensional objects placed on the front of a photograph. I am styling models to fit particular narratives. It is a quasi-portrait project featuring people with representative objects, or from their collections. The project is about collecting, identity, women, and domesticity. There is an element of trompe l’Oeil in these images, because looking at them straight on, there is confusion where the photograph ends and the object resides. My interest is to stretch the photographic image beyond its 2 dimensional frame.
