This piece depicts the point at which the subject begins her transformation from woman, into the monster she could become. It is a gritty urban style version of how humans, in this case actors, are often shaped and moulded into something they did not necessarily want to be. This is represented by the fact the female actors head is atop a male body, as she is being someone she is not in true life. I wanted to give the viewer an urban/rough scene in which to see these events unfold, because in everyday life, these people are portrayed as beautiful unattainable beings, often in similar beautiful surroundings. We as the viewer never see the darker behind the scenes action where this sort of ‘transformation’ happens.
