Photography is well accepted and widespread in its use to represent an individual's identity, yet the truth of the photograph is nowadays increasingly under question. We often consider identities as fixed or unchangeable and the photographic image helps to confirm this by 'fixing' the subject in a state of suspended time. The photographic work brought together for Absence of Presence challenges this belief by offering portraits and studies of identity in the process of being renegotiated. In this work, a focus is placed on that which changes in our lives: experience, possessions and environment, all factors which shape who we are and how we are perceived.
