The purpose of this project is to present the various sub-cultural lifestyle choices and practices that vary from what is deemed to be the norm. My aim through this project is to bring to the forefront reflective accounts of individuals who belong to such subcultures through a collection of photo and video documentaries.
In Culture X the creative outputs are just a medium through which the subjects take center stage.
I would like to bring forth these stories, not with the intention of forcing people to accept them, but simply because the general populace should, at least, know that these people live among us.
Instead of confronting mainstream attitudes, I see it fit to leave questions to be reflected on.
What are the various Subcultures being explored?
For the first theme, I will be working with Project X who very graciously saw both the artistic & educational value of this project.
Throughout the month of August, participants selected by Project X will share their stories with us through a collection of fine art portraiture and video interviews.
Stay tuned for more updates on the other themes that I will be exploring through Culture X.
A Personal Note
At its core, Culture X is a projection of my passion for visual storytelling on socially relevant topics. The stories being covered in this project are uncommon truths from voices that are usually muffled by societal norms - I believe that these voices deserve to be heard, and, such stories deserve to be told.
