This project originates from one’s curiosity in regards to female identity as it is constructed from family origins, self, and society’s perception. Through the use of appropriated family album photographs, scans, and self-portraits, the project brings together a myriad of imagery, which depicts and / or symbolizes female identity through the lens of family, self, and society. The collage style of imagery lends itself to the feelings of confusion, while one grapples with said construction of female identity and its influential sources.
Below is a sneak peek at some of the images.
