Do you follow the herd? Whether we like it or not, we are all ‘sheeple’. My new large-scale photographic series Sheep Nation includes 23 intimate and introspective portraits of sheeple. Behind every mask lies a personal truth: an innocence, a sense of individualism, a longing to be seen and heard. The 6 mises en scène depict people unable to think for themselves, allowing the influences of different forms of media to undermine their own identity and wander mindlessly in herds, like sheep.
