Instagram culture

I create these images either by photoshop or with a few photo editing apps on my phone, the original images are all collected from places like Instagram or digital magazines and articles such as vouge. Once I have chosen my image, usually based off of what reputation the celebrity has, or whether the photo is current, for example a recent red-carpet event or the latest magazine cover. I then edit one of my collaged faces over the top of the celebrity’s own face. To me, these faces have the underlying theme of masking and altering a reality and these collages look at how layers can alter perspectives. So, I started to play about with the images I had created to see how I could play with the focal points, to see on how reality can be changed and how the idea of layering can completely distort how you view things and show an alternate reality and this is why I edit them in such a way.
