Taken during a liminal period of self-reflection and internal confusion, the “Self-Portrait” series examines the topic of identity and authenticity of the self. The series highlights momentary fragments of light and color that warp and manipulate the overall form and expectation of traditional portraiture. “Self-Portrait” guides the viewer to question the various elements that make up their own perception of self: what experiences and factors have influenced their perception of the world and sense of identity? Which elements were driven by an invisible societal push towards conformity? Which factors represent an authentic manifestation of ones own soul?
For me, all subjects exist as fluid, their surfaces ever-changing by way of variations in light, time, and perspective. Through my photographic work, created entirely without digital manipulation, I aim to highlight the unique combinations of these factors that give life and soul to the surrounding atmosphere and to the present moment. At the core of my work I explore how these variables along with the differences in our subjective perspective define the unique feelings we associate with commonplace subjects.
