The portrait series seek to study how clothing provides certain group belonging or evoke certain images that reference to desired affiliations. In doing so,we developed a series of headshots that transform an individual to different characters by manipulating hair, clothing and accoutrements. By appropriating, re-appropriating, youth negotiates hegemonic mainstream identities to cross over cultural bias and exclusionary practices. Initially presented in a grid format with the street stickers, the multiple portraits have also yielded two sided transformative figures. A third body of work derived from the portrait series are the photographs that show an identity imposed onto a blank model, shattering the projected image into three: the part that sticks to the model, the excess image that projects onto the background and the dark show that represents the space in between.
