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.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
