AIRPORTALS revolves around the politically charged process of airport security checks. Taking photographs at                  these points of migration is strictly forbidden, however the x-ray machines used at them can leave their mark on                undeveloped photographic film – fogging and damaging the rolls, creating an unintended and abstract                                documentation.

          Created by purposefully passing film through security x-ray checks around the globe then shooting on top of the                damaged film, AIRPORTALS brings together reportage photographs and abstracted mark making to capture                      ghostly echoes of these tightly controlled boarder crossings. The waves of exposure that run through the negatives            present a forbidden portrait of these liminal zones whilst exploring the changing symbolism of airports from                        romantic non spaces to friction filled sites of protest, tension and invasion.
