Everyone has a Self' – Exploring Identity and Character Transformation through Photography
In the photo project 'Everyone has a Self,' I delve deeper into the realm of identity and character transformation. Drawing inspiration from hats, glasses, accessories, and makeup, I playfully forge the connection between myself and various personas through photography. Each self-portrait marks not just a visual metamorphosis but also a shift in role – from photographer to actor. This intriguing fusion of identities among the model, the photographer (myself), the actor (myself in diverse forms), and the viewer creates a dynamic and captivating interplay.
This interplay of characters and identities allows me to plunge into multiple layers of reality and experience. As an artist, I intentionally engage with the portrait as seen through the viewer's eyes, fostering a deeper level of connection and interaction. The resulting interplay opens a space for inspiration, enriching not only my own perspectives and insights but also igniting new stories and paradigms for both the subject and the audience.
