Adverse

I use my photographs to raise questions about the depersonalization in modern medicine, where psychotropic drugs are prescribed to individuals based solely on symptoms, regardless of the many differences in their physical or chemical makeup. Both the process and the end result highlight the danger of this one-size-fits-all approach. I create multi-layered portraits that are printed using the salted paper print process with prescription medications incorporated into the salt solution. The incorporation of medication used to alter the chemistry of the mind into the salted paper print process yields unpredictable results from print to print - just as it does with our own bodies.
