Real Life Dramas

1984-87

 

These photographs, which appear to be documentary, are entirely preconceived and set-up. Their appearance is meant to hover somewhere between reality and soap opera in order to question the "truth" of the camera's vision. The texts, which are photographically generated and printed in the white space of the images, appropriate the language of popular dime store fiction and are oftentimes overblown or irrelevant. Their function is never quite clear and is chiefly meant to be a fulcrum around which to operate a series of ideas.
