My current photographic work, Seeing Faces, explores the ways in which photographic portraiture has distorted our understanding of self. I offer ways to combat this misrepresentation by presenting methods of depicting selfhood through bodily abstraction. As a consequence of this removal of a figurative form, in viewing my work, either selfhood will surface as the main subject of the photograph and remove all predetermined notions that the viewer can place onto a physical body—or the viewer can read into the images their own narrative due to the intense abstraction.
