Marta
In Unconscious Commands and Judgements of our Century, a self-portrait project, I ‘perform’ different aspects of my personality in front of the camera with the intention of creating an inner dialogue of self-acceptance. 

The staged photographs where every single character plays a role in the conversation, are almost knee jerk reactions to notions I have always been conflicted by such as sexual expression, sexual orientation and gender identity. From image to image, characters talk to each other in a constant swing between freedom of expression and repression. 

Aspects of my personality that were once hidden away, are amplified and exaggerated in front of a surreal backdrop so their existence can no longer be ignored. The Fool - and many others - are dramatised and imagined just like children would when trying to explain what they don’t understand.

Buses, train platforms and e-cigarette breaks tend to be my most comfortable place to create. It is usually in those places that I zone out and give my mind freedom to express itself, though I’ve had some great ideas during boring conversations.

Most of my ideas arise naturally in the form of intrusive images, which I then add to or take away from during the development stage. Coming from a background of working in the mental health field I am inspired by the duality found in nature and especially human beings. I have a particular fascination with the hidden side of things – or ‘shadows’ – latent in every single thing that surrounds us and often spend most of my time investigating their origins and close relationship with Culture – trying to answer the child like question of why do ‘shadows’ exist. And more often than not, poking fun at it.

I see myself as an image maker and photography is the vehicle through which I express and escape myself. My ambition is to continue to create and execute some of the wildest images I have had.

Diogo Duarte was born in Lisbon, Portugal, and has been living and working in the UK since 2007.
