Clare Wyatt

Clare Wyatt is a Fine Art Photographer whose work centres around identity in contemporary society.

Her piece, ‘Alterity’, takes the notion of individual identity and places it into the hands of ‘the other’. It addresses the ability of the self to put forward a false image by removing their ability to portray themselves. Postmodern society has brought with it, a crisis in the sphere of personal identity; we are now defined by what we consume.The photographs are removed and replaced with audio descriptions and instead of consuming the image, the audience is presented with a mental one.

‘Alterity’ represents a search for an identity in a contemporary society and expresses the desire to feel understood by others, even though identity itself is fleeting as it continually evolves through interaction.
