Chris Lilley, 2012

It is funny shooting comedians, they are often uneasy being themselves. A fearlessly unselfconscious performer like Chris Lilley finds his freedom in the characters he creates. A simple costume comes alive through Lilley’s animation and blurs the boundaries where the person ends and the character begins.
