In this modern world ruled by mass and social media, we spend our lives pretending or striving to be someone we are not. For this series of images I have taken inspiration from cultures that still use carnival and masquerade to release tension and shut out the 'noise' we are surrounded by everyday. The mask can be used as a conduit; a manifestation and personification of the multiple personas contained within the human condition. The mask can exorcise our anxieties and express our dreams.
