These images document sensual and playful encounters between the camera and my body in a London cemetery, whilst undertaking intense fitness training.

I enjoy the power of being on display and the little performances that take place between the moment I press the self-timer and the click of the shutter. It is thrilling to repeat this process and be surprised by unexpected framing or the way the light hits the changing body, and the distortions and exaggerations that the camera produces.
