In the tradition of portraiture, Ansett forms confluent and empathic relationships with subjects from some of the most deprived situations and collaborates with them to represent something of themselves whilst asking existential questions about identity and belonging. Deliberately removing context and reductive narrative to confuse the expectation of any conventional representation. (See biography)
This image developed from the series in collaboration with production company CH4 television to represent the contributors of one of the most infamous television documentaries in British history 'Benefit Street'. This documentary and the accompanying images was labeled 'poverty porn' but this work and others from the series and beyond unapologetically represents one boundary that my practice explores in the representation of marginalised and misunderstood communities often driven by neglect and poverty. A form of contemporary Socialist Realism that shines a direct light on the under-privileged without sympathy but with empathy recognising an equal and apparel existence.
