Photography – perspective & looking

Stuart Hall said that identity is formed within represenatation, and not outside of it. The same way, Balkan is unable to form an identity outside of the stereotype.

I placed a frosted piece of paper on top of everyday things, so it would act as a perspective. One of the main focuses of my project is looking. Layer on top doesn’t allow us to see things underneath clearly, as the stereotypes act the same way.

It was imporant to capture everyday things (alongside with a doily) as they are part of my daily routine.

Photogaphs are not particulary succesful, but it was about capturing the relationship of the objects and the layer.
