Where are you really from?'Where are you really from?' explores the idea of home in relationship to race and identity in a classical form of portrait. Susan Mcfadzean brings together a group of ethnically diverse females whom reside in Edinburgh yet often feel interrogated on their presence and origin. Removing the obvious signifier of skin colour and employing the large format camera to heighten the intensity of 'the Gaze', Susan encourages the viewer to interact on an equal level with her sitters. Offering mutual recognition, the derogatory nature of posing the question 'Where are you from?' toward an individual born with features non-conforming toward the western appearance is highlighted to the viewer.
