Sustainable Prospects – Behind the Mask – Image Presentation Style 2
The second option for the was to produce a triptych for each person.
The triptych included the presentation of the images involved three main images:-
my ‘normal’ face – the one where I wear the mask
my masked face
my unmasked, raw face.
I chose to present the work on both a dark grey background and a white background.
My preference and that of my reviewers was for the white background. The images stand out much better and they become more powerful. The images are a little lost on the grey background.
The inclusion of the first image provided for much discussion between myself and others.
On one hand, I wanted to show what the subject looked like in a normal, everyday situation. On the other hand, I feel that the first image detracts from the powerfulness of the other two.
The next option is to try just two images side by side in a diptych. I am hoping that this will produce a more powerful impact from the images.
