In using the human body as a hanger to display clothing, the fashion industry has a great impact on how we see ourselves. Recently I have been heavily influenced by designer pop up shops, window displays but more importantly, Irving Penn, a world renowned fashion photographer. This project is a continuation of my previous work that I have created throughout my years in the photography program at The University of Utah. Having studied darkroom photography, I am intrigued by the drying process of hanging your images with a clothespin, just as you would hang clothes if you did not have a machine dryer. For this exhibition I have hung each individual image on a hanger, placed on a rack to be able to flip through as items of clothing.
