Looking at the idea of the collector, I have used the subject matter of the tiger (something I have a personal collection of) to investigate the numerous representations of the tiger both historically and in contemporary and pop culture. From this investigation I have produced multiple series of works that have become collections of their own. These series focus on various images of tigers but not necessarily all taken from my personal collection, so as to hopefully reveal the obsessiveness of the collector without direct reference to an entire specific collection. Wildness, the essence of what the tiger stands for, has been my main focus when editing and selecting images to use for these series.
