Habitus is a portrait series focusing on the stories of young Londoners (18-30), exploring their worries and motivations surrounding the prodigious tensions between our real and digital selves.
The daily urban pressures of existing within a transnational capitalist economy, where only networks and information flows, can overwhelm and distort our understanding and perception of ourselves; provoked simultaneously by our own actions and the digital ontology that holds these systems in place.
The project looks at our core beliefs and influences which shape our realities against the digital consumer selves which have been heavily shaped by geodemographics which define groups of people by their postcode and labels them as they see fit.
The series examines how we define ourselves against corporations and governments understanding of our value.
This series is a work in progress and this special edition looks into the lives of British Ghanaians within the capital.
The work will initially be shown at Autograph ABP: Ghana at 60 event, 12th May 2017 at 7pm.
