ICONS deals with self creation. We are all costumed characters whether we realize it or not. Beyond the genetic hands we’re dealt, we forge our personas through occupation, clothing and hairstyle choices, our possessions, and how we communicate through body language and expressions. Too often, people believe that they are locked into social roles and play their parts such as that of a doting mother, a respected priest, a right-wing conservative, or an anti-establishment iconoclast. In casting themselves as singular identities, they forget the fullness of who they are. ICONS invites you to approach identity with a sense of play and malleability, and to recognize the forgotten parts of yourself as you see them reflected in these portraits.
