Handick’s work is focused on the distortion of a normal image, to reconstruct it with a different feeling entirely. Fashion portraits, personal headshots and still life are manipulated extensively and the result is often something more haunting that the original image.

Mixed-media is Handick’s main focus when working with portraits. Incorporating a variety of manipulation techniques, including pixilation, shredding and overlaying, photographs are taken and feelings of destruction are presented through their modification. But what adds life and feeling to the image is the arguable darker feeling that runs throughout.

The procedure of destroying and rebuilding a perfect image adds a grittier vibe to the perfectly formed aesthetics, making the images all the more interesting in their presentation.
