The images in this series come from a single self-portrait. With this process of digital re-compositing, I attempt to find pieces of my father.
Ten years after his demise, for the first time ever, I found a few of my father’s belongings. There was a framed portrait. An almost stranger.
Whenever the sense of sheer hopelessness overwhelms and the void intensifies, I take shelter to this portrait and reflect parts of myself through various objects, color, elements, sound, sight and occurrences around me.
Through this self-portrait, I reflect on myself, comment on the state of immigrant displacement and their depression, the criticism of a capitalist-consumerist society and hope to find the means of a displaced human being’s survival through the act of mismatched and incoherent image-making.
