If Roles were Reversed

Digital Collage by Ema Reis, inspired by racial categorisation within the entertainment industry. This piece is an example of what Hollywood would look like if it were ‘blackwashed’ instead of ‘whitewashed’.

The collages are an exploration of this issue through pattern. Faces of famous figures were chosen, one being repeated over and over, having one opposing famous figure of a different ethnicity to show this idea of imbalance and inequality.

This project aims to bring awareness to how evident racism still is within the entertainment industry taking inspiration from specific events: #oscarssowhite movement, Beyonce Coachella performance, Black Panther, Childish Gambino This is America music video.
