125. Robyn Selem - It's Not What You Know, But Who You Know - Photography (Print)
21" x 30"
This work is one of five in a body of work that I produced during a very frustrating and depressing time of my life when attempting to return to the workforce. Although it's very much a cliché "not what you know but who you know," tends to speak truth. And if you want to get to the top, then step over the little people. But when you get there, is there anyone around you? The individual shots are produced in my third bedroom makeshift studio, firstly by photographing the manikin in countless poses. These are then digitally layered in combination with household objects to achieve the animated narrative.
