WHEN THE HAIR GROWS #2

 

I began to work on my first hair series ‘When the Hair Grows’ as a part of my Master’s thesis at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium. Project started as an exploration in texture and color, in which I focused on hair as an object. 

As I expanded the series nearly seven years after its conception, I drew relationships cross-culturally and generationally by incorporating an ever-widening range of bodies and ages. Because despite our differences, we've all got hair. 

Many cultures around the world consider hair - both on the head and on the body- as the supernatural element of human body. It helps building opinions about one another - looking at someone's hair one can learn many things about his or her character traits, personification or temperament. 

 

Project was published and in collaboration with I-D Magazine.
