The overall concept of my work revolves around the design of social identity. I explore this by cultivating an ensemble of different portrait series that conceal my subject’s face in one way or another. This is to question how physical attributes account for perceptions of who they are. When something as pivotal as ones face is taken away, it gives a sense of intrigue and provokes further investigation. Over the years of playing with this concept, my work has developed further with the use of lighting, constructed tableaus, costumes, and props to help push a sense of grandeur and elevate the work towards a cinematic aesthetic.
