Where have we met before?

Where have we met before? (2018) investigates the fate of ‘the face’ as a channel for meaning but also as the mask we use to hide our true selves. Each portrait is digitally manipulated, and the subtle differences in character from image to image illustrate how the face does not indicate personality.

How we present ourselves is shaped by our social environment, the culture we have grown up in and the culture that surrounds us today. This series suggests that our social ‘face’ is a creation of the minds of others; once we have surrendered the sense of ‘self’ to the imagination/construction of others, there isn’t, and can never be, a final version to this creation.
