After the Image is a series of photographs that reveals the staging and setup that takes place behind the scenes of photography sets. They touch on the aura of the objects, never directly displaying them images. Thus the subjects are invisible, off the frame, forcing the viewer to mentally reconstruct the images basing solely off the caption for reference. Before their eyes: an empty set at the moment of exhibition and the firing of the shutter. This series revels the elements and setup that will be sacrificed, erased, for the creation of the final photograph.
