Since October last year I have been attending
’s excellent and also rigorous EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) Program with the view to eventually becoming a Paramedic. This is a subject I have been interested in for a while now and it has marked a sharp change in the direction of my career which has always been art based. Johnson County Community College
Since beginning this course I have found myself making occasional photographs of the equipment used in this training with a mixture of something close to anticipation, excitement and also a little dread. These innocuous human representations have captured my imagination and stand in sterile and sharp contrast to the reality in which I am yet to experience. I find their dark implications difficult to both avoid and sometimes comprehend at this time.
This is a small selection of them and continues my on-going personal project which explores Overland Park, KS. (please see previous blog entries to view more on this project).
