Portraits of Power Boost

2017 - ongoing
-

We usually assume that faces are necessary components of portraiture; we may, however, learn just as much about the character, the personality of a person by looking at images that depict other parts of their bodies. Objects or places associated with them. Not focusing on the face may open up a new dimension of interpretation.
‘Portraits of Power Boost’ is a collection of used lipsticks collected from various women from different backgrounds.
The lipsticks can be compared to fingerprints, each individually shaped.
A mass produced product changed into a unique and unintended sculpture. The photographs reveal the personal process of a private daily ritual.
In this ongoing project I am (re)searching ways to find more daily objects used repetitively in actions that we undertake to represent ourselves.
