Aperture is a series of seven photographs that record me performing an ascending scale. As the scale goes up I move from a hum to an ‘Ah’ sound, changing my mouth shape to enable the higher notes. Paralleling this movement the camera's own aperture is widened on each step of the scale; the image gradually emerges as the sound did in the initial performance.
