Czech photographer Dita Pepe uses self-portrait photography to explore ideas of how personal identity can seem to change dramatically in relationship to the other people in our lives, and the surrounding circumstances.
In this series, she stages "what-if" scenarios, where she portrays herself in various guises while posing as a wife or partner of men from many different walks of life. Each photograph is made in each man's typical real-life surroundings, and often with his children (sometimes including her own real-life daughter in the mix).
We've seen this kind of self transformation in the work of Cindy Sherman, of course, but this is less polished, with a snapshot aesthetic that makes each feel casual and funky and somehow more believable.
Not surprisingly, her university thesis was titled, "Photography as a form of therapy".
