Daylight

Daylight is series of photographs created as an attempt to deconstruct the genre of portraiture. As a genre ostensibly meant to convey not only the identity of the depicted individual, but also something genuine about his or her personality, this series taps in to how daylight serves as a basis upon which we interpret the world around us.

In this series, each individual appears in front of a white background in natural light. The depicted individuals are artists, musicians, and yogis from Saint Petersburg and Sarasota, Florida. By utilizing lighting that does’t signal a sense of artificiality, and by eliminating any outside context, Daylight focuses on how a these individuals’ true personalities can be conveyed.
