Misconceptions started off as a series of self-portraits done in the photography studios at Manchester Metropolitan university. The photos are part of a "Text and Images" brief to be made and designed into a book. My project is based on a body of stupid, ignorant, funny, quirky or plain ridiculous sentences I have ‘collected’ since I moved to the UK. The sentences collected serve as the opening title for each photo. The end results are conceptual interpretations based on my own experiences. I would like my photos to convey the message that if you really want to know a person then you should talk to them with no pre-conceived ideas or assumptions, for we are all just people sharing the same planet.
