“Who Am I?”; Photography, 47”W x 68”H
“Who Am I?” was a series of six composite portrait images each created by layering photographs of individuals encountered along Market Street in San Francisco. These images are meant to reflect the diversity of people who live, work and play along Market, while expressing the similarities that also exist between us all.
With this piece I sought to explore the notion of identity. What is our personality? Is our character created out of the collage of people that we have come into contact with throughout our lives? Is our personality similar to a patchwork quilt, a bit from here and a bit from there? Or is there perhaps a more fundamental aspect which identifies each individual?
These images were reproduced as digital prints which were temporarily displayed in light boxes along the length of Market Street.
