Conceptual Photography - Series
Soft Shells is a photography portrait series that catalogues an individual with every item of clothing they own. This work arises from my interest in artificiality, visual power relationships and indexing a person through their belongings. Through this series I aim to explore the tension point between a person’s curated individuality and my personal manipulation of their aesthetic. Soft Shells speaks to human vulnerability, trust, power and control relations of visual interpretation.
