In the series Shape Shifters, I am exploring questions about how we create self-identity through the purchase and use of material objects. If portrait photography is understood to not only, capture the person’s physical likeness, in which the face and expression is predominant, but something of the person’s character, then what deeper connotations and denotations can come from covering the face? The coverings or material objects belong to the sitter.
