Engaged Intimacy uses self-portraiture to document and dissect a moment of my being and a part of my personhood. In this work, I place myself within an experiential context, while also capturing the qualities of ordinary daily occurrences. This series blurs the line between fiction and truth, incorporating views of daily life to reveal the complexity of my personal experience and the continuous evolution of my identity over time. It explores my small subjective experiences of the world and the intimate relationship I am in. By using my body and my partner's body I am able to show gender, ordinary affects, and the essence of the original experience, whatever that may be.
