Photography & Videography by Roo Lewis
Words by Naeem Alvi
In Issue 4 of The Quarterly, our Creative Director Roo Lewis is invited to take over a project by Mother co-founder Mark Waites. The project, aptly named ‘Supposed Histories’ follows a simple idea. People are asked to tell a completely made up story about themselves and their every move is captured on camera. The end result exposes the subtle body movements and cover-up tactics we all unconsciously, and often unknowingly, employ when we’re fabricating information.
As we put the final touches to Issue 4 of The Quarterly, we thought we’d share the first of three videos Roo put together during his time behind the camera. To get a deeper understanding of where Supposed Histories came from we also talked to Mark about how the idea came about, and where the project is heading.
