My partner and I

Dita_Pepe_10

I am sure that most of you have played this game, wondering how would your life be if you have been with a specific partner, haven’t broken up, if you have said yes or no, if she/he has said yes or no. Czech photographer Dita Pepe takes these speculations literally, shooting her life in different scenarios in her series Self Portraits with Men. Pepe’s chameleon talents , comparable to Cindy Sherman, are focusing more to the social relationships and social conditions around the self , rather than transformations of the self (itself). For ‘props’ she is using different guys, different offsprings (including her daughter), different clothes, settings and different looks. In fact it is quite difficult to distinguish who is the outsider in every picture!
