Under the Influence

Under the Influence is a photographic series that explore the practice of exorcism in African churches based around London. The enigmatic experience, of the photgrapher, of seeing deliverance became the main inspiration for this series. The series recreates the feeling of confusion that he encountered. Light is a very important aspect in this series, and within in Under the Influence this is further explored in the installation of the work, both through set building and the product design utilized in his solo show at TJ Boulting. He was able to transform a space, to extend concepts within his work relating to commercial display methods, but also create an experience for the viewer. He created a cold, clinical, digital spiritualism through the careful use of LEDs.
