How the Other Half LivesThese are large format portraits of individuals and families who have chosen to live in sustainable communities, working collectively to reduce environmental impact. Within the images I have made reference to Baroque portraiture, firstly to empower the subject, but also to raise questions. Baroque portraiture was originally commissioned by the aristocracy to display power, wealth and patronage. By making this reference stylistically, I hope to challenge the viewer's own thoughts on wealth, materialism and the environment. Furthermore, the experience of living in a community is like having an extended family, and for some, replaces ties lost with actual family members. This project highlights contemporary acceptance of the extended family network by mimicking ancestral paintings where lineage was a symbol of prestige.
