  1. It might be the double exposure of the male model, but there seems to be a (reverse) cause and effect going on with the tape between the two images. This seems to add some depth to the narrative. What this narrative might be is somewhat unclear. Speaking out? Oppression? Domestic issues?

  3. I like that there seems to some sort of message in these photos. It is a little unclear what that specific message may be, but it seems to be about freedom – freedom of speech expression – or perhaps feeling trapped in one’s life, one’s body. It is something that I feel every human being experiences at some point in his or her life to certain degrees. However, I find myslef wanting to see more of the first photo. I don’t like the cropping. It would be more visually appealing to see more of both the woman and the man compositionally and also in terms of expression. There is so much emotion in their faces and to be able to see more of their body langauge, like that in the man’s arm, would make the photo more powerful I feel. Conversely, I think the cropping in the second photo is very effective; cutiing off half of his face and body plays into the overall theme of being cut short and unable to fully express oneself.

  4. The first photo seems too forced to me. I think this is the case because of the black background, the subjects positions and the cropping. I would suggest changing the composition and perhaps experimenting with environmental backgrounds. The narrative is unclear to me.

  5. I love your use of lightning and composition here, particularly in the first photograph. The arm forming the divide between the two models does a nice job of creating a barrier between them. As others have said, the message in the second is a bit ambiguous. The expression doesn’t say a lot, but I really like the crop. Nice work.

  6. Both photos display amazing use of composition and lighting. It is apparent that you have technical skills as well as creative ideas. I really like the idea and they definitely go well together as a series. I do agree that it does feel forced, but i think that it only adds drama to your images. I wouldn’t change the composition or the background because i feel that those aspects are what help express your message so well.

  7. I find the pure black background effective, and I agree that the forced feel of the composition definitely works in favor of the photographs. I also really like the opposition between the people and the fact that the man’s hair starts to get lost in the background, yet the woman’s hair remains vibrant, almost like she’s overpowering him.
