"Teddy DI Brooks"

The purpose of this webpage is to prove some more in depth background information about the celerities in the photobook I created. The goal for the photobook itself was to show the effects of idolizing celebrities and how the fans begin to become more and more like the person they see on screen. I am paying homage to pop culture and playing with the idea of original people being inspired by pop culture . I used my experience with fan culture to set up my photobook. My goal was also use editing skill to learn to better merge images to create new ones.


Life Imitates Art

That has been the case for me especially being lgbtq+ and from a small town in West Virginia the media was my only exposure to people like myself even if the character projected and the celebrity representation were sometimes larger than life it become the person I always dreamt of being. I don't think that people should ever let anything consumer their whole life, but I think that taken inspiration from others can help a lot.
