Poly Boreland

Polly Boreland is an award winning Australian photographer, much sought after for her portraits and styling, used lycra and tights to create this playful and very disturbing series called 'smudge'.
What I find interesting about this work is its play, its experimentation and creativity and the way Polly contorts the identity of her subjects through stretching the fabric capsule of the body leotard, stuffing it or painting onto it. It is this experimentation that can lead to new ways of looking at fabric, at silhouette and fundamentally at ideas of identity and how we express them.
