This series responds to the commonly shared, pervasive sense of dread that characterises life in our era, evoking the ambient anxiety that permeates the contemporary consciousness.

Taking elements from the society we live in that place us in a lingering and foreboding state of anxiety and dread, I foreground the key aspects that are creating this emotional state to help express these emotions through the photographic form. I utilise lighting and careful location selection as tools to guide the viewer’s emotions into analysing the emotions that linger over all of us every day, whilst applying psychological-based horror theory combined with analysis of globalisation and the demanding elements that have shaped the world for decades.
