ポストしたのは2008年に制作された "No Love Lost" というプロジェクトから選んだ。
No Love Lost is a visual project that inhabits heightened sexual environments in contemporary England. People featured are active in the increasingly entwined and performative worlds of pornography, prostitution and stripping. What they share is a measured psychological engagement with strangers in close proximity that is a purely physical and sexual union lacking in affection. Fantasy is played out within the frame of constraints and closeness is kept at a distance. Menace is always present, control is often threatened. These are emotionally charged settings, both plastic and primitive, where the ‘stuff’ of life is all too present.

No Love Lost is a complex body of work about intimacy and dislocation in a theatre of sexual commodity. These are real fictional encounters that convey a sense of the difficulties of meaningful human connection in spiritually vacant environments.
