Everyday life in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil - documentary
The Wrapped Series
The project began 23 years ago with a 7 metre length of grey material and a subject who was inspired to wrap herself up. She projected such strength and emotion in every photo I took of her that I decided that this would be an ideal medium with which I could capture these feelings. Each subject is given the material and asked to interpret it in whatever setting they choose. And with no direction from behind the camera, I record what they do. Each person with their own story. Each image with it's own story. As of March 2017, I have photographed 76 women in this project. And plan to continue for as long as the material holds together.
