Rebecca Foreman’s practice explores the act of looking within photography, and the effect this has on the viewer when they come into contact with it. Foreman attempts to push the boundaries of a photograph, especially when it comes to its display, so that the focus is not necessarily directed to the centre of the work. It is often that we mistake a photograph, and the photographer’s perspective for that matter, for reality; however, Foreman encourages the viewer to experience a photograph through their own eyes. By stripping the detail back to almost nothing, the viewers must work to build up such detail, and ultimately find their own perspective within the photograph.
Foreman intends her viewers to be consumed by the experience, in the hope that they consider the way they view their own surroundings in their everyday lives.
