Hello It'S Me
"Hello, It’s Me" seeks to portray moments when adolescents find themselves poised between two worlds – here the real and the virtual – as they seek to navigate a path through the shifting sands of their lives and negotiate their way into adulthood in an uncertain, ever-changing world. The one iconic object that currently defines adolescent life in the modern world is the smartphone, intrinsic to the image of today’s youth.
Amardeil’s series places the visual intensity of the stunning backgrounds in constant juxtaposition with the cold light emanating from the phone screens.
