“The Tortoise and the Hair,” from my series “Chromatopia,” is a self-portrait on 35mm film about the stereotypes of colour and identity. Focusing on artificial personality types that fit the utopian ideals and expectations that anyone can be anything simply by wearing certain clothing.

April Winter lives on Mayne Island, BC, where she works from her small forest encircled studio. Her projects concentrate on developing techniques in self-portraiture and film photography as well as bridging the gap between the viewer and her different fantasy worlds. Themes such as isolation, utopia, space exploration, and sexuality inspire her when creating her props and tableaux-like sets.
