For my latest photo series, ‘Masks’, I explore the different ways in which masks can be used to either hide or to show your identity. I photograph myself as different personas using makeup as a mask. I also use actual masks to illustrate the comical side of my work. All of the images in this series were shot through a mirror, to represent the ‘selfie’ era.. Although the photographs are very performative I tried to recreate some of the women that I see on social media. I was heavily inspired by Cindy Sherman and Catherine Opie throughout this work.. I wanted to honour these photographers with subtle nods to their work in my photographs.
