Turn Around is a series of self-portraits that explore insecurities in selfhood from a particularly female perspective. The series was created in response to society's constant evaluation of outward appearances and the ways in which people can be dramatically affected by their clothing choices. Using familiar poses borrowed from fashion and advertising, assumptions are subverted when the viewer finds that in fact, the subject is actually facing away from the camera, poses given away by the backs of knees, the position of thumbs, or the backs of elbows.

*Turn Around No. 2 was exhibited in MNEMONIC at the H Gallery in Ventura, California
