‘Called to order’ is a photographic typology of male members of the legal profession. Society often has preconceived notions of such public figures, at times not noticing the characters of these individuals. This series looks at the complex and contradictory aspects between the wig and gown’s symbolic function and the men that wear it. Taking influence from early 19th Century portraiture, and retaining aesthetic elements of style, the function of the portrait is subverted to reveal something else. The men create almost caricature depictions. Archetypal figures have been avoided and instead new sentiments are evoked.
