    "Gender Morph" (2013)

    A series of photographs.

    I have been really interested surrounding ideas of gender stereotypes which are forced upon from a really young age - obviously the largest difference forced upon us is that 'pink is for girls and blue is for boys', although theres more to it than that - the way in which boys are brought up is different to girls. Even the way we present ourselves with clothing and make up.

    I looked at mixing up the idea of typical gender stereotypes in a sense, my mocking up some images of myself with more masculine features and my brother with more feminine features - arguably if there are such thing. Mixing up our features showed a slight uncanniness in the images as we are related some appeared slightly off, although its difficult to notice what. This is why I did little gradual changes.
