Do Not Forsake Me
This project is presented as stills and video, taking elements from 1920’s silent cinema. I am exploring surrealism in photography by creating illusion. The narrative surrounds the notion of satirical humour having comedic elements. The male character is represented as a mannequin. I have used the characterisation of the female as a powerful, dominant force having full control over her life, creating her own private world. The delusional female character has created and duplicated her perfect man. Her power is exaggerated for effect and attention. The juxtaposition of the modern characters in a period setting reflects the past and how times have changed with regards to the relationship between men and women in society.
