In “Anonymous” I used stand-ins for self portraits and this allowed me to step outside of my self.
The nameless women silently speak for me. They become me in a universal sense. I think it might be easier to reveal our deeper truths anonymously. I am anonymously directing the emotional expression of universal characters. In essence these photographs are emotion portraits, and by stepping away from my individuality, I feel it invites the viewer to engage themselves in the mystery of their own truths, or to contemplate how the emotions depicted resonate in their own lives.
“Anonymous” was published in the last year in Al Limite Magazine, Eyemazing and Mono by Gomma Books.
