Ozone Dave  is a collaborative project that I & Megan Mandeville ,  UClan fashion styling student, produced. The principal element to the project was based around enduring fashion styles. Megan chose the sitter & I organised the documentation processes. I found it appropriate that the sitter became in charge of the representation of his identity. This led me to give him the option of using his own old imagery & shooting on a basic point & shoot film camera to have past & present documents of him throughout his life. This then led onto postproduction work which enabled me to consider the possibility of the future of rockabilly fashion. His shop is ironically called Ozone, which ties in well with this perpetual space like fashion style. I was concentrating more on the clothes & additions to the human body hence why I have chosen to delete the visible skin; this also causes an uncertain anonymity about the work much like, where enduring fashion styles are likely to transpire to. This uncertainty & experimentation coincides with the way we perceive space & time; this is where I chose to link the two together in more of a light hearted humorous way. The gifs were put in place to remind us that the styles go through changes but repeat themselves sure enough.
