Illuminated examines our growing interactions with technology and its influence on our daily life. In this series random residents from different parts of the city are photographed in the comfort of their own domestic settings lit by unconventional for portraiture light sources. Each photograph depicts a spontaneous, intimate moment in time, depicting the sitters in their natural pose exhibiting different states of absorption, similar to those which happens when we witness a live event unfolding or that of live performance. The voyeuristic point of view offers a sense of intimacy by revealing aspects of people rarely exposed on public view, while ultimately invites the viewers to reflect upon their own experience with technology and  questions its authority in our lives.
