‘Inside Out’ Photography reclaiming identity in a complex society
Who are we? What do we believe? And what are our values?
With questionable histories to refer to and our online presence increasingly reflecting a negotiation between manufacturer and marketer rather than a meaningful identity, where does true expression of the self exist?
In a world which encourages us to rapidly adopt and shed identities, through consumption and self- publicity, to what extent can we be expected to know ourselves? If we treat these new technologies within the context of photographic tradition and practice, we may better understand how they function. Contemporary photographers often work in the space between traditional visual arts and current vernacular practices, questioning each in attempting to define meanings for themselves.
Presented here, these research led photographies explore notions of personal and social identity as a critique of the ‘now’ and an attempt to reach out and make meaningful connections with our past and future through performative and poetic personal anthropologies.
