An ongoing personal project.
The purpose of Face is twofold.
First and most simply, the project celebrates the diversity of the human face.
Secondly, it intends to challenge the narratives we create when encountering an unfamiliar face and a familiar one. Who is this person? How old are they? What do they do? Is this person kind, quiet etc.? And, why do I think that? These narratives are based on a variety of social cues when we see an unfamiliar face, and they are ultimately just imagined.
When we see a famous face we base the narrative on that person's public persona. But, what do we really know about a famous person beyond their branding?
Of course this project doesn't try to answer any of these questions, only to inspire thought and perhaps suggests the viewer assume less about people we don't know or think we know, rather, seeing a person, not a stereo-type or assumption.
