Dysmorphia: Photographic works by Rachel Britton
Date and TimeThursday, December 6, 2018
- Mary Idema Pew Library » Exhibition Space
Photographic images by Rachel Britton reflect the descent from reality into obsessive states of mind through lighting effects and digital manipulation. This show is an extension of work created for the photography program’s 2018 senior thesis show and is a culmination of Rachel’s participation in the 2018 Library Summer Scholars program.
Dysmorphia reflects the descent from reality into obsessive states of mind. Influenced by Body Dysmorphic Disorder—the preoccupation with real or imagined flaws of the physical body that produces behaviors such as hair pulling, skin picking, and looking in mirrors often—I am fascinated with the overwhelming presence of the disorder in people’s lives. I distort reality through digital manipulation and lighting effects to reflect the mind in turmoil driven by these hidden and obsessive traits.
