This body of work seeks to challenge cultural conventions by fusing the rural with the urban, and the stereotypes of such with my identity. This form of contemporary culture draws upon the inspiration of dandyism and subcultural movements that challenge the conventions of conformity. This is done through reference to Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of taste and will be executed through styling and presentation. This autobiographical series showcases the tasteless alongside the tasteful and captures the exploration of human nature whilst expressing the disparity in the influences on my own lifestyle. - Roshan Whittaker
