From the artist:

"In a moment of nostalgia i delved into a heap of matric farewell photographs from my year- 2008. There was something immensely amusing about the terrible composition, horrific dresses, brash material and ridiculous show of confidence at such a tender and famously insecure age. The opportunity to momentarily monumentalize these qualities as traditional portraiture resulted in these tongue-in-cheek works. Framed in a gold painted polyurethane furthers this humorous conglomerate, poking fun not only at the human obsession with self, but also at the narcissistic tendencies of the art world."
