Ariana - Labeled with a mental illnesses: schizophrenia

Their faces are pale. They are depressed and disordered. Separated by a glass sheet, exposed to the judgement of passers by, they pose. Obligated to show off the seasons' collection, mannequins reflect parts of our social values, blatantly.
The uninhabited face of a store front mannequin, a puppet that enchants us by its flawless looks, its aesthetic thin posture, and seductive clothing, is a reflection of what our social values have defined as beautiful and significant.
One could argue that these mannequins, and their uninhabited lifeless faces, these soulless portraits, are a reflection of what our society has become. We stand in front of shop windows and see our very own reflection in the pristinely polished windows - and we gaze upon the mannequin, imaginably superimposing our body, our face onto the lifeless puppet, to convince us how perfect we could make ourselves look.
This series of photographs aims at creating a body of work, a reflection and indication of who we might become if we are not conscious of the social contexts we are exposed to.
This is a series of lifeless portraits - are they that much different to the images we see of ourselves, and the labelled definitions we impose on others?
All Photographs have been taken with an iPhone.
