Why is it that we have such intimate relationship with our hair and that no other part of the body seems to hold such a variety of symbolic power? Hair is a part of our body and therefore part of our individual identity, and yet it can so easily be changed, detached; transformed. There is so much information embedded in the way one wears and handles their hair. There is a fascination once again by the visceral qualities of hair that seem so alive when it is not. Through the act of manipulating hair, the photographs tell a story of an individual but also about our society as a whole. Through the handling of the hair, the personal and intimate moment is reconstructed.
