Exploring the Manipulation of Identity and Behaviour as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic

I started my identity journey exploring my own identity and the way this pandemic and our increased dependance on social media has manipulated it. I then asked the audience to send in their stories for my project, anonymously, explaining how this pandemic has impacted or changed their identity and the way they behave. I was overwhelmed with the amount of people who reached out and trusted me with their stories. It became clear to me that the hit that my identity had taken as a result of countless lockdowns and long isolation periods was an experience I shared with many others. These images are a response to a handful of those stories. Now, the identity of the figure has been negated from the equation completely, leaving the viewer free to imagine themselves in its place. I hope that this series of images brings the viewer some sort of comfort in these uncertain times.
