Projection Studies:

The projection studies are a visual convergence of two individuals that together make up a couple. These photographs were created by using the lens of the camera obscura to project the image of one person onto the body of the other. The final portraits are shot using a digital camera without the use of Photoshop and explore the ability of the photographic medium to render fantastical moments that are simultaneously fact and fiction.
