SEEING DOUBLE

By Thea Traff

In 2006, the Los Angeles-based photographer Siri Kaur encountered a Superman impersonator while walking down Hollywood Boulevard. She spoke with him at length and became fascinated by his line of work. In the years that followed, Kaur donned a Wonder Woman costume and immersed herself in the community, scouring Los Angeles and travelling to impersonator conventions in Las Vegas to photograph characters. She completed her resulting series, titled “This Kind of Face,” earlier this year.
