Mimesis is a series of photographs that examines notions of masculinity and suggests looking at gender stereotypes from a contemporary perspective. Inspired by Greek mythology, the project questions our perception of the feminine and masculine side of the male. It explores these ideas through dance and body movement. It also aims to test theories in which repetition and imitation are seen as existing parts that shape an individual and see masculinity as a form of performance not just as a set of traits inherited biologically. This body of work fits within my interest in portraiture and fashion, and my ongoing exploration of themes of gender and identity as tools of expression. The full project consist of 24 photographs which are presented in a photobook.
