This series is still bring created; it’s taken over a year so far. Most of the works are created in collaboration with photographer Kudzai King, with subjects from everyday life, stripped not only of their clothes but also so much more of their identity.
The process grew from the the New York and Joburg manhole print series – applying paint this time to naked bodies instead of iron, and pressing them on paper. The subjects are everyday people and I don’t divulge their identities, so their images remain suspended without reference to age, race, sexual orientation or social status.
Afterwards, their bodies are photographed covered in paint, covering their faces with papier-mâché animal masks. These photographs are available as limited editions of 8.
