Forgive Me, For I Have Sinned
2012 - 2015
After struggling with the emotional, physical, and psychological affects of addiction, I began a 12 step addiction recovery program in 2011 while living in Jerusalem, Israel. "Forgive Me, For I Have Sinned" is a representation of the pain, guilt, and ultimate transformation I experienced. The photos in this project are not documentary snapshots capturing the emotional psyche as they unfold. They are theatrical reenactments that intentionally delve into constructed pseudorealism. The repetition of the same character in a single image alters time and space and moves from the physical world to the psychological.
