Portraits:  Suite 6

METACONSUMER / PHOTOGRAPHY

 

  Suite 6 is the sixth installment of Portraits. The process is similar:  I’m a customer in Kmart seeking customer service in the women’s clothing department. I begin by telling a fictional story in order to inspire a response (as a medium) for what the best outfit for the day might be according to the woman I am working with:

All of my cousins are taking a picture for my grandmother and I don’t know what to wear.

They always say I look frumpy and like a lesbian and I don’t want to look that way.

I don’t want my grandmother to think I’m a lesbian. Can you help me choose an outfit?

She chooses my makeup, accessories, shoes, and undergarments. Then she meets me in the fitting room to OK my look. After approval, I walk out of the fitting room where a secret shopper is waiting in the clothing racks. This secret shopper has a camera. I stand like a doll before returning the clothes to the fitting room.
