Agatha Whitechapel

Agatha Whitechapel

Location: Austria

Born in Hammersmith, London, Whitechapel moved to Vienna, Austria at age 15 to work as a photographer´s assistant before segueing into film production and direction, interweaving the two worlds ever since.
Her childhood obsessions with fantasy and storytelling turned into visual explosions with as much colour, pop and pomp as possible.

My portraits are photographic documentaries of my life and the people in it, predominantly women, reflecting feminist ideals or change, usually within an already established context.
The concept pieces are tailored to fit a specific person with sourced styling pieces, props and colour palette, before shooting the staged scene in miniscule detail.

Each collage is constructed from between 300-2000 single photographs, using natural light and created to be life-sized.
