Second Skin

by Second Skin

“Second Skin” is a photographic investigation of the nature of identity, posing the question: who are you?

Through this series of documentary photography projects, the members of Strand Collective examine the ways in which identity is shaped by complicated social, family and environmental demands. As they explore different areas of our lives, such as our identity in the workplace, our private, secret lives, the ethereal world of dreams or the concrete and glass around us, the Collective questions what we take for granted, peels away the layers and asks the viewer to look into the ambiguity of the self and the human capacity for social disguise. Simon, a member of Strand Collective commented, “We each hold a unique position in the world and we wanted to create discussion around the different roles that we play from day to day.”

The project also exists as a self-published 28 page book.
