Fitting Rooms
2013

Fitting Rooms is a series of photographs created in and around London's high-street fashion stores, created in order to explore the concealing and revealing of female identity. Glimpses of women are seen trying to fit into standard-sized garments, secretly shot from underneath the door of another fitting room cubical. This concealed liminal space, where women and girls experience a temporary private moment of self-reflection creates a paranoid tension for the user, who (through clinical lighting and distorbed mirrors) scrutinizes her body from all angles.
