False Expressions


My photographs invite the audience to decide what they think about society’s beauty standard based on what is shown.

My portraits show how beauty standards in the industry are portrayed in different individuals and how they make them feel. The aim of my work is to capture what the individuals are feeling on the inside about beauty standards and bring it through to the surface. The shots show how differently each individual processes the way that they feel, some left exposed and uncomfortable while others embracing the experience.
