Alma Cecilia Suarez – Jannis
by Alma Cecilia Suarez
Jannis is a photographic atlas portraying a young Chinese man who migrated to Singapore. In search of identity, he oscillates between his native culture and western influences. This multifaceted person is portrayed by the play of contrasts between archive images, portraits and writing. These typologies come together to form a complex imaging of this person. Jannis plays with his image and affirms himself through it; its reflection has a universal character.
