This series of images is an exploration of my own identity, taking into consideration the 'butterfly effect'. They explore how I may have been a completely different person, had I made different choices in my life. I created a variety of personas to visually represent alternative versions of myself, researching women in the media for inspiration. I found there to be very definite stereotypes of certain women in society and so I played on these characteristics in order to style each of my shoots. Although the photographs are self-portraits, they represent a depiction of a range of women who appear throughout the media today.
