Photographer Examines Life With Different Husbands

Czech Photographer Dita Pepe was fascinated with “what could have been?”, and decided to re-imagine what life would have been like with different husbands. Pepe uses self-portrait photography to explore ideas of how personal identity can seem to change dramatically in relationship to the other people in our lives, and the surrounding circumstances.

In this series, she stages “what-if” scenarios, where she portrays herself in various guises while posing as a wife or partner of men from many different walks of life. Each photograph is made in each man’s typical real-life surroundings, and often with his children (sometimes including her own real-life daughter in the mix).
