Photographer Michele Mobley is currently nomadic, traveling the United States in a van. Centering upon herself and those closest to her, Mobley’s photographs feature illusionistic, staged happenings. She uses the process of image-making as a performance piece of sorts, capturing what she describes as “passive bodies subtly aware of a voyeuristic gaze just outside the frame.”
“The act of photographing myself and others becomes a trial of recurrent exposure therapies,” she explains. “Themes of isolation, seclusion, and femininity meld together on quiet, minimal landscapes and stages. Often, subjects seem stagnated by domestic reign, trapped, still, holding their breath.”
Michele Mobley is one of 70+ photographers featured in our new photo book, CIRCLES. Check it out in our shop, and see more of her work below.
