We don’t all tread the same waves, two may live the same experience and retain something different of it. Comparatively, the images are meant to spark different perceptions, memories and debate. Although the portraits initially spark questions and judgment, they connect with us all on some level - evoking emotion or inspiring us intellectually. The portraits are presented through the lens of the observer as the first-person, allowing one train of thought to wander to another like a lucid dream. Together the portraits unify the extremes and middle grounds of emotions of my everyday life. Within each portrait is a moment of injudiciousness that may be perceived as either inappropriate or bold. These features are achieved through different lighting, varying sizes of people, confusion, and interesting shapes. However, the perception of what one see’s or does not see is the true governor.
