The Wig Maker

The Wig Maker

Wig makers play a huge part in creating the magic in films. However, their work remains largely unrecognised. I wanted to meet these amazing people and uncover their hidden craft.

The Wig Maker

Wig makers play a huge part in creating the magic in films. However, their work remains largely unrecognised. I wanted to meet these amazing people and uncover their hidden craft.

During a trip round the Grand Theatre of Geneva I saw the craft of wig makers. This discovery got me really intrigued and I felt like I needed to find out more. During my investigation I talked to a couple of different types of wig makers, when I found out that wig makers play a huge part in creating the magic in films but weren’t recognised for their work. During my exploration, I found myself going deeper and deeper into their eerie world. To communicate this experience, the wigs are turned inside out, exposing the mysterious intricate world of the wig makers I met.
