My practice explores the archetypal tendencies of female actors in the film industry and how these reflect patriarchal societal values. I am interested in a woman’s place, including my own role, in the male dominated industry of photography. I focus on the stereotypical roles women have to play, in particular that of the suburban housewife, often being presented as hysterical, with a complete lack of individual identity. A ghost of the past is present in this photo through the use of dated interiors. I combine items that are a poignant reflection of today, symbolising an incapability to escape old social forms.
