In "Fandomania: Characters and Cosplay"(Aperture), photographer Elena Dorfman examines the pop culture phenomenon of "cosplay" (a merging of costume and play) in which participants dress up in costumes- and live part of their lives-as characters from video games, animated films, and Japanese graphic novels. The artist will discuss this exploding subculture as well as the issues of identity and portraiture at the heart of her work.
