Final Major Project: Shoot FMP#15 – Hannah – 26-04-18
I was able to shoot all of the images featured on this post using only natural light.
The theme was again the faces we hide behind on social media. Behind the masks we see is another person. We cannot always see who that person is.
The sitter was asked to interact with their mobile phone and to behave as if they were not wearing the mask.
The double images are reminiscent of family portraits and imply a level of intimacy between the sitters.
The most successful image from the session is below. The sitter positioning the mask onto her face gives a look of uncomfortableness and insecurity. The hand positions really portray this.
The images from this shoot are most likely to feature in the “Masked Identities” exhibition next year (although the last image would also work in “Fractured Identities”.
