Anna White, Becoming Meryl Streep, 2019.

#Bookface is an exhibition of photographs by Melbourne artist Anna White. She applies a technique of strategically lining up a figure and background to match a book cover so that there appears to be an overlapping of life and art.

Bookface has been a popular social media phenomenon since 2015. New York Public Library was a forerunner in the use of this digital platform to draw attention to the analogue world of books. Working part-time at a library, White began to experiment and engage with these issues and the Bookface format last year.

This series of photographs feature local members of the community juxtaposed with selected books from the Yarra Libraries collection. These images utilise the creative scope inherent in the Bookface format – interrupting the expected, and playing with surprise and humour.
