Mitsuko Nagone

Mitsuko Nagone, “I am more than my face” is a photo series where Nagone portrays everyday objects by masking herself with daily routines.

With this project, I intend to create myself, instead of finding my identity. people often ask themselves, ‘who am I?’ however, the definition of who they are could limit their own possibilities and the infinity of their essences. I believe that the self should be created, instead of being found. the self-portraits explore this idea since the face, [which] seems to emphasize ‘who’ a person is, is obscured.” -Mitsuko Nagone
