Photo Description:
For this studio piece, I created a photo¬≠montage and Victorian influenced silhouette of myself. The photo¬≠montage is composed of images of Bulgarian orphans taken during my visit in October 2015. The mounting is layered with maps, diary entries written in Bulgarian and local Bulgarian newspaper extracts, representing the collision of cultures through my visit. The purpose of this piece is to convey the contrast of wealth and social status, as well as challenge stereotypes concerning the lives of so called, ‚Äúorphans‚ÄĚ.
