Work > Hoodwink

Hoodwink is a series of photographs that juxtapose the self-conscious language of portraiture with urban niche cultural signifiers.

These works pose questions about the visual construction of American femininity as filtered through performances of working-class, urban female roles. These Highly-constructed portraits of white women adorned in wigs, faux nails, and exaggerated jewelry are positioned before airbrushed backdrops of bucolic settings and reference an art historical tradition of portrait painting while borrowing visual elements from the vernacular culture of music videos.
