- •Hidden Luminosities• For the next few weeks I'll be posting photos from my series I only dreamed of creating up until September. In 2016 my mom was throwing out a lampshade and as crazy as it may sound, it sparked an idea for a series😂 I've been holding back on posting this for so long partially because it was such an important and long process for me emotionally, and partially because I submitted into a National comp. Unfortunately it didn't place in any way but I'm glad entering the competition pushed me to work hard to produce these images. They are all shot on medium format film and I'm so happy I chose to shoot it that way. Just adds to the magic✨😊 This is also an ongoing series😋 Anyone interested in the idea behind the portraits can read part of my artist statement below ________________________ "My work is about vulnerability and identification. I believe the face is an opening into the soul. Our face gives us a sense of identification. By obscuring the face, hiding it with a shade, I am questioning identity. Just as lampshades dim the light in a room, I have chosen to dim the character and identity of my subjects. I want them to be anonymous. I want them to be able to hide. My subjects are hiding from the outside world, yet drawing more attention by doing so. The portraits should feel awkward and yet familiar. I want the viewer to question, and to be uncomfortable in their experience with the art."
