Daylight is a series of photographs that use a stripped-down approach to portraiture. Each utilizes a setting with a white wall and natural light as an attempt to thematically isolate the depicted individual from artificiality. This is a means to portray each person in a sincere way.
Because photography’s most fundamental formal element is light, this series acknowledges that employing material based in everyone’s common reality, such as daylight, helps to thematically signal realism in reproductions created using the medium. By emphasizing what’s real, Daylight fulfills what may be the genre of portraiture’s primary qualification, which is to create an image that transcends the reproduction of a person’s likeness.
