Duplicitous, by Melissa Jordan
Initially cinematic moments, these images are reformed. It is always a moment, unexpected, never a planned portrait. The captured image, akin to the original film stills, suggest a narrative but offers no certainties.
Although frozen, the figures appear to be shape-shifting, playing with friction. Their inability to fully reveal themselves reflects on the duplicitous nature of their narratives.
Often exhibited at a larger than human scale, in this publication, these prints are now returned to their original format.
