True Face

TITLE: True Face

AUTHOR: Nicole Connolly, Joseph Dye, Katey Phillips, Cristiana Wilcoxon, Seth Yund

CATEGORY: Revolution


In this photo project, participants were asked to choose books from the Chapman Library that they normally would not want to be seen reading in public. Because of the anonymity provided by the Guy Fawkes mask and black hooded sweatshirt, social concerns about reading perceived illicit material were no longer threats. This collection explores the tradeoff being made between censored content or censored identity. It illustrates the power that identity holds over our willingness to revolt against the status quo.  The commentary of each reader regarding his or her choice of book is displayed next to each image.
