This series plays with the fluctuations in the subject’s representation: in this photographical work the students/workers to use their job uniforms, which display the visual identity of the company employing them. These students wear the work uniforms outside their usual context, driving them away from their original purpose.
The persons carry out the gestures of their job as a performance piece with their faces hidden behind their work uniforms and objects, in order to accomplish the photographical image.
The student, that usually wears a “disguise” due to his/her need to work, transforms his role as a worker and becomes a performer for an artistic action, and restates in a different way his presence through his body and energy.
