About Me

HI, I'M SAIDIS ORDA, A GRADUATE OF FALMOUTH UNIVERSITY.

Saidis Orda is a fashion photographer, creative director, and stylist. Born and raised in Lithuania, he developed a highly motivated manner of expressing himself creatively through storytelling.

Throughout my body of work, I respond to identity disorder, homogenization, celebrity culture, and the post-global world that current humanity exists in. Harnessing the power of different mediums, to create confusing illusionary states. Also, by exploring senseless feelings by questioning the image's purpose.

INSPIRATION

My inspiration centers around identity disorder.

For my Final Major Project, I was inspired by how our new global populations have become weak to comprehend the pressure of social media and all of the doctored images.

Identity disorder, also known as multiple personality disorder, is a diagnosis that pressures people to question their true identity. The condition can also lead to feelings of other identities being present, each with their own voices, names, personal histories, appearances, and mannerisms. In the context of the contemporary digital world, compulsive disorders are exaggerated and magnified, where people lose their true selves by becoming overly obsessed with certain celebrities and their lives.

MY WORK

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

Homogenization

Throughout history, homogenization has never been as common and extreme as it is today. During the Golden Era of Hollywood, celebrity culture became over idolized, where ordinary audiences started to mimic their idol’s looks. Today, we enter the era of plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures that allow people to achieve certain idol looks in a matter of a few hours or days. Throughout the project, I created my own celebrity look that I mimicked on diverse age models. The intention was to make my project more visually provocative and awaking to understand its importance. Therefore, I photographed models from 3 weeks old to 97 seven years old. That allowed me visually show different periods of human life that make us who we are in those moments. The only difference is the illusion that you are someone else...
