“This Kind of Face,” Siri Kaur’s exhibition at the Cohen Gallery, reveals both the artifice inherent in the medium of photography and its ability to capture truth, however elusive and subjective it might be.

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.

INTERESTING THINGS YOU DID OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL?
I mostly did a lot of bike riding. I did some epic rides on a special bike that I built for exploring the local fire roads and mountain trails. I did some longer rides including many centuries, and one from L.A. to San Diego. My favorite thing was organizing parties and art shows with Centaur, my art collective.
