In the series ‘I am more than my face’ Japanese photographer Mitsuko Nagone explores the concept of personal identity. She uses herself as the subject, masking her face with everyday objects.
Mitsuko Nagone states that “with this project, I intend to create myself, instead of finding my identity … I believe that the self should be created, instead of being found.” Interestingly, many of the objects used are cooking or cleaning appliances, so one can’t help but wonder if there is a feminist agenda in the mix. Either way, my very academically phrased review of Nagone’s art is: THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE SO NICE.
