Historical Context:
"People have always fascinated me. There are no two people who are exactly the same. So with the project I asked myself, how could I show more than just a person's face? This series i snot about simply capturing someone's appearance. Instead, it is an attempt to convey their personality through a photograph. Through the use of studio photography and compositing, I have made an effort to create dynamic scenes that pull the viewer into the image. A high level of detail and a blurred background also allow each subject's individuality to be a more prominent focal point within each composition. My hope is that this body of work will present a fresh way of viewing portraiture and allow others to ponder what people might see if it was their portrait on the wall." - Nick Estrada
