The Other People
Since the shift in popular culture within recent years, what was once deemed something for 'geeks' and 'nerds' has evolved into something for a large audience, sprung out through the need to express ones own individuality and homage to their favourite character from various media platforms from comics, video games, TV shows and movies. The internal landscapes of the people who cosplay have changed their physical appearance. Dressed to reflect an exact representation of a fictional character, they embody the characters personality and mannerisms. With this in mind Paul Bradley has documented those who participate in cosplay, showing them in their current state of costume, placing each subject within a surrounding which is appropriate to the persona they are projecting.
