This series of images are carried on from my previous set of photographs.
After looking at Gunter Brus’ work, in which he self paints. I was inspired to try out a similar process. However, my model is very calm so my images do not portray the same darkness in which Brus is able to convey. However, this is not an issue as it reflects the sitters identity.
In contrast to the previous photos I asked my sitter to smear black face paint over the top of the white and let it carry on, onto his clothes. These photos show a development in confidence, between myself and him. These images are more bold and striking as he becomes more confident in front of the lens.
