Inspired by the work of Amy Judd, this series, Faceless, has a strong focus on composition, light, shape and position of the subject to create a collection of silent moments of faceless portraits. The idea is that the figures come across as frail and delicate to represent the moments where we’ve lost direction, whether it be of ourselves or where we’re going. By hiding the face of the subject in the photographs, it allows the viewers to place themselves into the picture. This type of absence reveals a fundamental presence; the absence [of the subject’s face] allows the focus to be directed at the unexpected, spontaneous element that was created through its creation.
Originally, these were intended to be soft and sensitive images; now they hold mystery. This adjusted process allows the subject to be both feminine and beautifully eerie. These now haunting images look at “being lost” in a different way than before but the original intent still remains.
