Today my Name is
“Today my Name is…” departs from the desire to photograph those closest to me. Using a diaristic approach, the gaze has been turned inward: this is my life, my observation, and my reality. This body of work functions as an archive of passing moments, ranging from the quite intimate ones, to the more rambunctious ones. The choice to use Polaroid stems from the desire to shoot spontaneously, whilst being able to satisfy the impulse to record, to depict, and to share. “Today my Name is…” is a visual diary chronicling an understanding between friends and family. It captures an important element of humanity that is transcendent: the need to connect.
