wall•flow•er noun /wôl-flou(-ə)r/ 2. A person who has no one to dance with or who feels shy, awkward, or excluded at a party
The body of work entitled, “The Wallflower Project”, examines the social stigma of being a “wallflower” through the use of portraits created with a cardboard pinhole camera. This project features the fading “Wallflower” through portraiture, merging the model with their wallpaper background. The resulting images create a ghostly portrait that requires the viewer to take notice and spend time to see the person before them.
