Personal Project — Faces (Part 8)

“Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man.” – Edward Steichen

Faces is a personal project that I’ve started and worked on over the past few months. I have shot portraits of over 30 different people as of this writing.

I talk about its inception here. This is the last installment of the series in this form. What started out as an exercise in color and lighting has turned out to be a journey in finding my own visual style. I am not saying that I will no longer shoot portraits in this manner, but that I am simply taking the series on the road (figuratively most of the time, but literally in some cases) to keep me on my toes.

This last set features three faces that photograph quite well. Two represent the different faces of Filipina beauty and one is a kindred soul, a rather gifted visual artist.
