Piece description from the artist
This photograph is part of the "Challenging the Code" series. These highly constructed photos are attempting to recreate the anxieties and ideals that the media embeds in our society. I am trying to articulate the impossibly perfect environments that I aspire to. My pictures represent a psychological exaggeration of my reality.
