White Collar

White Collar is a body of photographs about the economic shifts encountered by white-collar workers in the era of late capitalism. By extension this work reflects on the evolving position of Western economic power, a position dominated by males for most of capitalism's history. The photographic series viewers' attention on two iconic representations of economic power: businessmen who are captured and isolated in in-between moments as if contemplating their status and range of responsibilities in competitive urban life and the signifier of global market relevance, the skyscraper, appearing elegant and ominous at once.
