The photogram process was utilised to explore the theme, ‘Phobias’, in a novel way. Pared down to abstract elements, the images focus on the debilitating fear of an object, situation, or feeling.
Phobias are more pronounced than fears. They develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object.
If a phobia becomes very severe, a person may organise their life around avoiding the thing that's causing them anxiety. As well as restricting their day-to-day life, it can also cause a lot of distress.
