Milky

When asked what I do as an artist, I like to say that I put people in unusual predicaments and photograph the outcome. Much of my work focuses on my subject’s spontaneous reactions to the unexpected. I’m most interested in the dynamic between the person and the situation.

With Milky, the camera documented the immediate emotional reactions of 60 individuals being doused with cold milk. In the series the only constant is the milk; what is unknown is how the person will react.

In the images, the materiality of milk can act as a metaphor for the nature of sexuality — something that is fluid, tangible, yet ephemeral. Those who appear in Milky are my friends, lovers, and complete strangers who just happen to be coated in the fluids of another animal. By taking a familiar substance and perverting it, I talk about some of the emotions that sexual desire conjures: pleasure, danger, and detachment.
