Selfhood is in part inspired by the proverb "the eyes are the window to the soul" and a desire to challenge the need to see the eyes within a portrait.
the intention in each portrait is to create a character and a narrative and encourage an empathy without the visual stimulation of the eyes.
the viewer is inspired to make their own inferences about the subject's persona and circumstance by drawing on personal connections and interpretations to each image, whether these be from memory or culture. therefore each portrait in the series can take on a number of different identities depending on links made by the viewer to their own experiences and opinions.
