In the web cam world nothing is as it seems. Peel away the sex and pixels and money and you’re left with the cloudy truth about the Internet’s relationship status with these on-demand entertainers: it’s complicated.
These images capture the individuality of the models, and break through the lines that separate actress from woman at home. These idiosyncrasies are often captured in moments of non-performance, and are accentuated by the choice of frames where the Cam Girls are often only partly in shot, not in shot at all or are juxtaposed against moments where I’ve given them direction via online chat.
They have something to say about the relationship between the “real” and the “virtual” in contemporary life, urging viewers to reconsider the boundaries between the two. It is a virtual exploration at the cross roads of technology, sex, money, performance, business, and the human need to connect.
Collaboration is key to make this project work for everyone involved. A photo book is underway and will be not be available in traditional book stores. It will be distributed online via the Cam models who in return will receive a percentage of sales.
