Projects > Masks

"Masks" is an object and photo series inspired by the ceremonial regalia of various cultures. It deals with ideas of cultural perception and self-representation. Through these masks, I am exploring cultural appropriation and the implications of dominant cultures “borrowing” from more marginalized groups and vice versa.
