/ Publication: Perception & Deception





Publication, 2017

A publication reflecting on our capitalist society.










“Perception & Deception” is a publication reflecting on the book “Preliminary Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl” by Tiqqun.

In this publication, I explore some aspects of the capitalist society such as the lack of authenticity, the superficiality, the conformity and the unrealistic beauty standards. By overlapping photographs, I show the contrast between appearances and realities; the contrast between the mask and the authentic self.

Each chapter starts with a statement, which is then deconstructed and challenged through several still photography stories. The objects are used as metaphors to tell stories about us, about the capitalist society we live in.
