Portrait of M (2018)
No one is ordinary. Everyone is ordinary. Everyone is under-represented. No one, especially in the age of social media, is under-represented. For this series of portraits, I want to convey the idea that people are multi-faceted and that there is no one way we should look at each other or ourselves. We have feelings that conflict, thoughts that contradict and multiple visual identities (on-line, IRL and in our own heads) that we present. Working with the shape and layout of the banners, the portraits of the subjects attempt to reveal this complexity. Eighty-two subjects were documented as part of this portrait project commissioned by the City of Mississauga.
