My project Authetic costumes is a project where I create stories using Portrait and Still Life photography to explore the identities and lifestyles of people in the modern world. Constructing an identity within a single photograph leads us to judge that person, stereotype them and not fully understand that persons true identity. Using my commercial background mixed with artistic influences I have created a unique way of displaying my work as to offer a window into the subject’s life and lifestyle.
I intend to open the viewers eyes, to let them explore and discover the hidden world around them and to breakdown the judgement and stereotyping that we all make every day about each other.
My work will be displayed as a main portrait surrounded by still lives, for me a story within photography is important by using more photographs I’m allowing the viewer to be absorbed into a life of another.
Above is how I display my work when it's in exhibition, but have a look at some of my favourite photographs from these subjects below...
