Portrait of Fluidity
I was inspired by the work of Carl Jung around his concept of gender and identity. He believed that a male’s soul is inherently feminine, whereas a female’s soul is inherently masculine. I created a miniseries of portraits that represent Jung’s concept of the harmony between masculinity and femininity. My aim was to convey this subtly through my subjects to avoid looking performative and remain authentic. I wanted to create different shapes through how the subjects filled the frame, drawing back to the concept of fluidity. I made my portraits abstract by placing water over the images. I tried to make each design unique to how I believe the subject presents themselves, the water showing fluidity through each of their own individual identity.
