Semiotics of Beauty was created to analyse my construction as a woman. Family photographs reveal subtle but significant indications of gender norms and expectations. These codes and products of femininity are combined in the photographs to obscure the identity of the person underneath. I use makeup as a vehicle to deconstruct the lose-lose situation’s that women are faced with.
