Suzy Lake as Bill Vazan is a grid of six black-and-white photographs that show the artist morphing into the image of fellow Canadian artist Bill Vazan, with the use of an applied moustache. Vazan is the celebrity in Lake’s Warhol-like use of multiple images.

This work represents the increase in self-awareness and issues of identity that became central to the work of many Canadian artists during the 1970s.

Lake was born in the U.S. and currently lives in Toronto.
