A conceptually rigorous painstakingly detailed portfolio exploring conventions of ethnographic perceptions through a series of self-portraiture featuring Raj arrayed in the traditional authentic finery of various nations. Her inviting countenance is revealed as ethnically morphic as she successively embodies both the epitome and increasing obsolescence of race-based constructs of identity. In 25 portrayals comparisons are encouraged as both differences and samenesses are celebrated equally. In these images audiences see the artist more deeply and inevitably come to see themselves as well.
