Art 576-Advanced Photography
Digital prints; 5″ x 7″
These photographs are a continuation of self-exploration through a hat mimicking bison horns. An alter-ego is born when the hat is worn, it is a being unafraid to show vulnerability, confidence, and ultimately accepts its own mortality. The lighting used in these portraits references 17th century Dutch paintings in order to heighten the tone of the subtle facial expressions and body language. I am introducing different props to transition through the themes of vulnerability, confidence, and death.
