NADIA LEE COHEN: HELLO My Name Is (2nd edition)

NADIA LEE COHEN: HELLO My Name Is (2nd edition)


HELLO My name is is a remarkable book. Obsessed with flea markets, car boot sales (and the the leftovers of lives lived in recent urban history that they hold), Nadia collected the name badges of 33 unknown individuals. She created personas for them, visualised them and ultimately transformed herself into them. The photographic portraits and resulting book are the product of many hours spent in wardrobe, make up and prosthetics. 

Each photograph in the book is accompanied by a full page portrait in still-life form; objects and belongs Nadia has acquired to give detail to her characters - like the contents of a purse, desk drawer or glove compartment.

The book closes out with a brilliant collection of on set Polaroids.
