These images are nevertheless underscored by tension and palpable throughout Weir’s practice - the transgressing of surfaces and boundaries, the uneasy relationship between camera and subject, and the inevitable constraints of choice and power that hover around the frame of a photograph. In this sense, these images can be thought of as both liberation from and a mirror to Weir’s diverse output in fashion, editorial and portraiture photography.
