The Misrepresentation of Representation.
These selected images are part of series of a series which explored the concept of Orientalism, western ideologies and challenged staged stereotypes and ideals constantly regurgitated within the arts and text. This project is not aimed at creating new stereotypes or narratives but to uncover that although 'beautiful to look at' taking a step back displays awareness in how identities have been forced to sit within particular frameworks within western society. These narratives can no longer be used as a means of true 'representation'.
