More often than we might think, we find ourselves in a position of extreme vulnerability where we are completly at someone's mercy - at the dentists, on the treatment table, in the gym. Consciously or otherwise we sense the danger, knowing we have ceded control of the situation, and our reactions are highly revealing. The ambiguities of these insecure potentially perilous moments are explored in this original sequence of photographs: a woman in a beauty clinic who could be anaesthetised; and a man so wrapped up in a video game that he might be deep in prayer. Trust, it seems, has a highly visual quality.
