‘2041’ is an eponymous collection of self-portraits in which the image and identity of the artist remain concealed. Using the camera to articulate a passion he has secretly indulged for decades, he appears dozens of times in a variety of garments, but is always anonymous
By photographing himself in these costumes he adopts multiple personas. He explores different approaches to self-concealment: he adapts and re-appropriates clothing ranging from the traditional to the theatrical, and he combines draped and folded fabrics in a rich array of textures and colours. He poses and performs in front of his camera and around his home.
