Running On Fumes
Jewitt’s Running on Fumes is a poignant document of addiction with an unusual twist. The project focuses on the perception of someone who is addicted to opiates and heroin – the addict is Jewitt.
Running on Fumes is a conceptual project that explores many angles and is potentially one of many projects from Jewitt that will focus on the subject of addiction. His intention has been to reflect the mood and emotion of the individual through metaphor and how the details of their environment can come to represent the experience of addiction itself.
The images from Running on Fumes are evocative for the use of heroin and the environments in which these pictures were made act as triggers for the effects of taking such drugs.
