Iffat Jabeen had a passion for architecture. This transitioned into art and design, which evolved into photography and inspired her to study animation. Her creations stem from everything surrounding her: absorbing every thought and vision, dreams and wishes, nightmares and fears. With the constant aim to experience a new world she can call Home, she'll keep thinking, dreaming and fearing to create that world for others to see and feel with her. She is currently based in Glasgow.
Persona is a series of images which represents hiding oneself and creating a personality one wishes they can be: to express the real (or even fake) you or to hide oneself from what they truly are. They are open and somewhat ambiguous when it comes to their interpretation. One can suggest they desire freedom from some kind of suppression or perhaps wish to be suppressed. One can also say that they are hiding under that fabric, to create a new personality - someone who they'd rather be, hiding themselves for any reason you wish to assume.
