'Cosplayers' is a series of images that explores the action, by individuals of varying age and race, dressing up in the role as comic book and game characters. Each costume is made by the wearer and paraded by them at conventions. The photographs seek to represent the diversity of costumes that are being displayed at these events. Photographing the subjects facing away from the camera conceals the identity of the individual cosplayer and with no facial expression evident, so too, the personality of the portrayed character. In this way, the audience is open to question the nature of the character and the reasoning for the chosen fictional persona.
