The Emerging Self
Bye-Bye Baby and Celestial Echoes
These images deal with the notion of developing adulthood within the milieu of British society today. In Bye-Bye Baby I am exploring the way young boys and girls interpret their understanding of masculinity and femininity. Having left the purity of their childhood worlds, they seem to take on the trappings of the grown ups they mimic and of the status quo as set out in popular culture and the media. Celestial Echoes continues with this theme looking at this phenomenon within older adolescent girls.
