Essence of People / Portfolio Show

Tue Aug 12, 2014, 6:14 PM
.essence of people.


UPDATE:
I've posted 6 of the photos onto my deviantART account! I hope you like them! :love:














--------------------------------



You can see the first 12 photos of my new series -printed and mounted by me- on Thursday, April 14 th 2014.
The show will be in Santa Barbara, California.
The show is open to the public.
If you wish to attend send me a note and I'll tell you the address! :meow:

I have a new series and it's titled 'Essence of People', in which I combine my love for scientific photography with people photography.The concept is that this is an anti-environmental-portrait. I take portraits of people but don't try to define them via props, environment, clothes etc, but instead they are very tight crops focusing on their faces. Then I take samples of the people of what is 'essentially them' (like their blood, their hair, their cheek cells the ink of a tattoo artist or the make-up of an make-up artist etc) and make microscope slides out of them. After making the slides, I photograph them under the microscopes and exhibit the diptychs: the realist portrait on one side and the abstract microscope photo on the other side.

The idea was born out of the realization that I often sensed a connection between how a compound looked under the microscope. For example, champagne looks very fancy out of the microscope and I thought it was fitting for this drink. Hence, I hope that viewers will find a sense of my subjects in their microscope samples as well.

I have always considered myself a nerd. I have always been attracted to various sciences, especially to the medical field. I love seeing and understanding how the world functions in ways that are logical and rationally explainable. People photography often leaves me unaffected. Perhaps because I’ve always claimed I have a bigger affinity with animals than with people.

It’s an attempt to learn more of that person, to help visually define them, but in an environment I am comfortable with, a surrounding I can relate to, a bridge I am crafting to combine science with emotions. I am also hoping it’s a more unique way of looking at people, shedding another light onto them.

I hope there will be this emotional link and the sense of belonging between my subject and their specimen.

You will see the final concepts and portfolio of my entire "Lighting People" class - all personal concepts developed by the individual photographers!

I would love to see you there! Especially because I've been neglecting DA so much and it would be fun to catch up!


.graduating portfolio show.


Additionally, the portfolio show of this semester's graduates of Brooks Institute will also be this Thursday, April 14th. The show is also open to the public and all the photographers will be there to socialize with you and to answer any questions as to their amazing work.
Once again, if you're interested in attending, send me a note!


I'd be happy to see you there!!!

Love,
-Kay
