This work is about alter egos. I feel that we all wear a mask of personality when we go out in public. Big or small, they’re often created out of defense, shyness, or just to fit in. The first photo represents their everyday public personality, and and the second represents their alter ego.

A lot of the shots I used were off guard. I talked to each person about their personalities with my finger on the trigger, pressing it at sort of random when I felt they had let their guard down.

These are two images from a group of back photos that I took for my final series. I have an interest in capturing a person in a portrait-style set up, but without photographing their face. I think capturing their back, which may reveal broad shoulders, speckled skin, tight muscles, or protruding ribs and spines is much more personal and interesting. The back is really underrated and my series attempts to shift portraiture from faces to other revealing/characteristic parts of the body.
