Hannah Ellen Taylor
As a child, my environment was very safe, ordered and even restricted. That instilled a curiosity that inspires me to use my photographic practice to explore the way other people live, by inhabiting their space. I am using risky actions to test my true identity through a performative, humorous approach; conceptually questioning the gaze of self-identity in a manner that is comic and fun. I am challenging the social norms of privacy and personal space, capturing characteristics through the use of body language, temporarily occupying a strangers’ identity. This question’s the idea of pushing boundaries by displaying myself in clothing from unknown individuals’ washing lines, navigating my space, by intruding on their spaces. This final series seeks to start a conversation, inspiring others to investigate their own self-identity.
