This piece of work was part of my Culture & Context brief for University. I wanted to show a different culture to my own and I came up with using my old flat mate as the model. The reason for this is that she is a rastafarian and her culture is very different to my own. I wanted to bring things to the image that made up her culture and way of life. But I also wanted to show her personality which is happy and always having fun even though some of the parts of her culture could be considered a quite heavy going.
