Wannabe is a photographic project about doll-like girls in Japanese culture —about the objectification of these women to serve societal customs that lead to android-like behaviours. It illustrates how people who grow up in a given culture unconsciously feel the need to follow a predetermined role.
With this work, González Miralles aims to question how societal standards —not only in Japan, but elsewhere— constrain human behaviour and the development of identity. Questions that affect us all, especially considering the obsession with self-projection in today’s society.
With a Master’s in Documental Photography, Elisa González Miralles has been a winner or finalist in major photographic awards worldwide and has received grants from renowned institutions, including World Press Photo. She has recently exhibited in the Rome International Festival, the Art Photography Show in San Diego and the Lishui Festival in China amongst others. Wannabe is her last project, exhibited at Blank Paper, Madrid, coinciding with PHE15, and PhotoIreland 16.
