Stock photography is everywhere and yet it holds an invisibility as viewers pass unaware of the origin and systems in place. Stock companies work silently as millions of commercial images of all subjects are ready to be bought on their websites for business use.

My images follow the rules of the generic stock aesthetic as they appear as clean, multipurpose representations of the ordinary. These images are accompanied by captions that are usually descriptive words and phrases that anticipate what the buyer searches. By taking the photographs out of the context of a stock site or advertisement, I am exposing an overlooked weirdness within the stock business. Here, I have constructed more than my own image bank, but a hidden pre-structured world organised into categories and easy clichés. I aim to reveal a unique uncanniness where photography begins to comment on photography itself.
