Unconscious Commands and Judgements of our Century
UNCONSCIOUS COMMANDS AND JUDGEMENTS OF OUR CENTURY
- A SELF PORTRAIT SERIES - 

In Unconscious Commands and Judgements of our Century, a self-portrait project, I ‘perform’ different aspects of my personality in front of the camera with the intention of creating an inner dialogue of self-acceptance. 

The staged photographs where every single character plays a role in the conversation, are almost knee jerk reactions to notions I have always been conflicted by such as sexual expression, sexual orientation and gender identity. From image to image, characters talk to each other in a constant swing between freedom of expression and repression. 

Aspects of my personality that were once hidden away, are amplified and exaggerated in front of a surreal backdrop so their existence can no longer be ignored. The Fool - and many others - are dramatised and imagined just like children would when trying to explain what they don’t understand.
