The Hogon series are an exploration to the manner in which contemporary photography, fashion and visual history use cultural appropriation as a style; Taking without permission, the cultural artifacts, intellectual property, or cultural expressions, of another cultures.
“Ritualism” can be seen as documenting the latest religion of city dwellers. It explores the ways in which modern people, whether we are aware of it or not, create rituals in our daily lives. Sometimes these rituals are designed to help us find deeper meaning in our lives. Other times we use rituals to lose ourselves in the seemingly endless stream of sensations that bombard us in modern life. Stripped of all dogmas, we as individuals can develop our own rituals that define our place in the current of urban life.
