To choose clothes, either in store or at home, is to define and describe ourselves.
Nowadays society is pressing on us not to judge other people by their appearance but our instinct dictates us otherwise. We are seeking for similar dress codes to fit in to certain social groups (stereotyping). This proves that we judge people on first impression (prejiduce). We use clothes as a tool to express our self, feelings, moods, social status, characters. Since we are young we are making these choices consciously some of us unconsciously, but the older we get, it becomes more of a choice and statement.
When I take the clothes off the people and photograph only the clothes instead of people, the clothes start taking a life of their own. Despite the absence of the model the photos are imbued with human presence.
