Project Title: Social Media and Identity

Social media consumes us and affects our lives without us even realising. My project explores how these social media platforms impact young people’s identity. I used cyanotypes and digital editing in order to portray elements of a concealing and revealing nature as well as corruption of identity.

I used both manual and digital techniques throughout the project in order to understand what worked the most successfully in order to present the theme of identity. I then went onto produce six large scale cyanotypes in response to this concept and by having six outcomes this gave me an opportunity to highlight to broad scope of how many young people this affects.

I am going on to study fashion communication and promotion at Manchester Metropolitan University. I am aiming to utilise my photography skills in this course as it is an ongoing passion of mine.
