ABOUT ESME

My work explores society, consumerism, and human behaviour. One influence has been Gareth Philips photographic work, recently shown in the Elysium Gallery, Swansea. Another influence has been Adam Curtis’s experimental approach to film making. Curtis collages archive footage and text as a form of political action. In this work, I have photographed staged scenarios as well as urban and rural locations since they appeal aesthetically to me, before searching for connections through collage to communicate my own perception of capitalist/societal issues.
