I M O G E N D A V I S
is a London-based photographer.
Artist statement: I use photography as a way of capturing and holding on to feelings that would otherwise escape my grasp. It’s a way of taking something like breath or the feeling of loss and sadness and holding on to it, making a photographic world of these immaterial things.
I believe that photography is used to capture moments of people’s lives, moments that would otherwise be lost in our memories forever, only to be manipulated and distorted by our own thoughts and other memories built on top, each overlapping and contorting the last. However, to document breath within photography is to capture something that is invisible. For these images I learned how to blow my own glass, making physical recreations of my breath that now have memories of their own.
