Out Of Role

In this series, I question the representation of identity of young actors and actresses, and the difficulty of identifying their own identity.

Where does their identity remain if they keep taking on other identities, and are the transitions not fluent? Is it even possible to depict identity in photographs?

The series is at least an attempt to answer these questions. The motifs are in transition between clarity and movement, sometimes the people and the surroundings are clearly recognisable, sometimes the identity seems to dissolve completely.

This work is part of an ongoing, bigger project I am currently working on.
