Everyday People is an ongoing project about the self-perception of unknown models. The participants respond to an advert posted on a famous London site, in which I simply offer to photograph whoever wants to take part in an art project.
The project intends to reverse the usual relationship between photographer and model by giving to all participants absolute freedom to direct the photographer’s actions. They choose how and where they want to be portrayed as well as which picture should be shown out of the final results.
Throughout this process I explore the immediate and intimate relationship between photographer and model that arises from the anonymous nature of a virtual advertisement. This absence of personal links and their desire to be photographed enhance model’s personal boundaries to be broken in front of an unknown photographer.
