'Masquerade', a visual exploration of our true selves
Face masks have become, without a doubt, the symbol of the global pandemic affecting us all in 2020 and 2021.
Regardless of where we come from, where we live, what language we speak or what beliefs we hold true, we have all been faced with similar challenges to overcome, connecting us and bringing us all together.
This photographic series explores the symbolism of masks through the use of photography’s particular ability to describe an historical moment in a conceptual form.
Each photograph encourages the viewer to question the way in which we reveal ourselves to others.
And ultimately, ask ourselves: Has society turned into one big Masquerade ball?
The series 'Masquerade, a visual exploration of our true selves', was created at the beginning of the 2020 lockdown and the months that followed.
