After working on Cindy Sherman for my gallery talk and watching Upstream Color by Shane Carruth for one of my blog posts, for my final project, I decided to explore identity. Is identity relative?
For this project I took pictures of people that I know and added some sort of background through photoshop to try to portray their identity. I attempted to explore their identity in two different ways. One image attempted to portray their identity, or a characteristic they would use to describe themselves, basically how they see themselves. The second image attempted to show a part of their identity, of themselves, that stand out to other people; basically how they think other people see them based on how they are treated or what they hear. Then I merged these two images together to highlight the contrast between these two images, or lack of.
Here is the link for a folder with all the images:
