For this calendar month a microscopic camera is used to record intimate body parts. Invading the privacy of the body, probing regions ordinarily hidden from public view, these detailed portraits are paradoxically abstract. At such close range, even the most ‘private’ parts of the body become ubiquitous and indistinct from one another, detached from the body of the person from which the image is taken. These images raise questions about privacy and identity. On the one hand they are extremely intrusive, on the other, absolutely impersonal as the detail becomes unrecognisable as a specific body part. At such close range, everyone’s body parts become one in the same.
