#Photographer Imagines Her Life With Dozens Of Different Men [#geekgirl]

Dita Pepe

Dita Pepe, a Czech photographer from Ostrava, takes photos of herself as part of different families and with different men. “The Self-portraits” series began in 1999 with photos of Pepe in other women’s lives, but just as her life and partners changed, her 2003 MA project became “Self-portraits with Men.” The project is ongoing.

“What would it be like if I had been born somewhere else, in a different way, to other parents?” Pepe told CNN. “By using someone else’s clothes, I think I am dressing into someone else’s skin…”

Pepe’s self-portrait photography captures how identity is dependent on people and your surroundings. In 2003 she gave birth to her daughter, Ida, who is featured in many of her shoots.
