Costumes by David Faulk
Photographs by Michael Johnstone

David Faulk’s wearable art (body costumes, hats shoe creations etc.) are used in the creation of the Photo series Mrs. Vera’s Daybook,a character composed of discarded and unlikely materials. Mrs. Vera engages the viewer with ideas of non-conformity, isolation and celebration. By transforming these unwanted items into something unexpected, she enters society through her interaction with her surroundings and the general public.

At times shamanistic all those drawn to it are welcome to become part of a tribal experience, as when we assemble for gay Pride celebrations and street fairs etc.
