We’re embracing the need to innovate how people access MOPA’s art by turning the lens on us.

Catch weekly shows on MOPA’s Facebook and YouTube.

Portraits: Family Role Reversal

What is your role in the family? How do you see the roles of other members of your family? Now imagine, *poof!* You’ve switched! Using props and some cinematic flair, how can you capture a role reversal in a family portrait?

Photographer, Cindy Sherman, created self portraits presenting herself as a wide range of characters playing out a variety of roles using props, costumes, and thoughtful backgrounds. Taking inspiration from MOPA’s annual Youth Exhibition theme, “growing up,” we can play with how the roles we play change – or don’t!

You will need:

  • A device to take pictures (Camera, smart phone, or tablet)
  • A subject to photograph (yourself, family members, or friends that are with you)
  • Props that represent the role you are playing
