'Male leaders' self-portraits (2009)
Six 14X11 in archival inkjet prints
Looking at Portraits of Power by Platon from The New Yorker, I noticed that out of 50 world leaders, only four are women. This inspired me, as a female, to create a series of self-portraits, dressed up as prominent male leaders from the past and present around the world. My initial approach was to use wigs and make-up, but due to limited resources, I completed the series through digital imaging.

In this project, we had to choose an alter-ego, mine being a celebrity. The magazine covers show the variety of things that celebrities do, and how glamorous they appear. The paparazzi tabloid and video interview shows the negative side of being a celebrity, and the stupidity of some famous young stars, how brainless they are.
