'Resistance in the face of Aggression' - Series I

This series considers the prospect of conflict in a post apocalyptic world and investigates the concept of dystopia through the motif of masked figures taken from historical and present day photography. 

The specific portraits have been chosen because they represent the duality between the strength and fortitude required under a resistance situation in the face of hostility and aggression, whilst also revealing the inherent vulnerability of individuals when our fragile peace is broken under circumstances out of our control.
