RUBBER IDENTITY

Ongoing series started 2017

Our hair is deeply connected with our identity. For centuries, hair has had complicated connotations with our inner selves, politics, religion, and social liberation. So what happens to our notions of ‘self’ when hair is not a factor?

‘Rubber Identity’ is a series of portraits where the model’s hair is hidden by vintage rubber swimming caps. The models are unnervingly visibly uncomfortable with the caps, when they are no longer able to affect their own character with their hair.

While they are seated in classic portraiture postures, the models feel particularly vulnerable, exposed, and intimate. You get the sense that we are seeing them for exactly who they are. Perhaps even for the first time.
