CHARACTER ANALYSIS by Teresa Burkey. Special Jury Mention.
Updated: May 17, 2021
Character Analysis explores stereotypes, role-play, and identity.
The series was shot with one model, seen differently depending on how she was photographed, resulting in 10 final characters.
The goal was to show the viewer how powerful stereotypes are. Without being told, we create a narrative through outward appearances.
