This work contains nine appropriated images of a decorated foot. Originally photographs taken as part of an anthropological study, these images have been re-defined and re-assembled in a way intended to draw attention to the frailty of the original intent of the photographic image. The work also challenges the notion of the traditional boundaries of fine art photography.
