Persona Non Grata by Juli Balla Keeps Identities Under Wraps

Facial expressions may convey much of a person's character, yet the Persona Non Grata photo series shows that it isn't the be-all and end-all of such intimate knowledge. A person's hair, clothing and habits can easily divulge just as much information, arguably even more, as everyday expressions can. Of course, an observer shouldn't get caught up in judging a book by its cover.

Shot by Juli Balla, a fashion and advertising photographer based in Sydney, Australia, the Persona Non Grata photo series revolves around two mannequins as well as a slew of wigs, costumes and accessories. For instance, one 'woman' is portrayed as an innocent country girl with teased hair, pigtails and pink bubblegum whereas a dapper retro man is clad in a gold lame blazer, bow tie and mysterious sunglasses.
