Let's Face It 8 Portraiture
I am zero is about existential insecurity and the need for recognition. In these self portraits I pose as the heroines I loved in my childhood: Catherine Deneurve, Jean Shrimpton, Julie Christie, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and Isabella Rosselini. As a twelve year old, I didnít want to be like these people; I wanted to be them and to fuse with their magic. This behaviour is not unusual and that makes it interesting. Is it a phase we pass through or does the desire to morph into someone else stay with us? Ultimately, the more guises we hide behind, the more we lose the gravity which holds the self together.
