Prey is a compilation of 12 photographs form a larger collection of images taken during a trip to Iran in March 2006. This work intends to question and diversify perceptions of Iran by subverting the often limiting viewpoints of the world media and offering alternative imagery. The focal point in this work is images of Iranians filming and taking photographs in a variety of settings; recording both public and intimate moments. Prey raises the sensitive issue of representation and the act of recording itself in a setting where the camera is a powerful hunter and the subject is often the prey. This work has been exhibited as part of a larger group show at St Paul’s Gallery in Birmingham in association with Rhubarb Rhubarb and also at The Edge Gallery, Sheffield.
