Exploring the dichotomy between reason and emotion
Peel back masks
Who am I, truly?
My daily struggle
Feeling the persuasion
Blurring the line between fiction and truth
The Two Sides of the Truth is a collection of conceptual self-portraits that delves into the complicated realms of identity, self-consciousness, and our perpetual struggle within. In this ongoing project, I explore the dichotomy between reason and emotion, science and creativity. I am considering the multiple realities and midpoints that define my own psyche, while urging the audience to peel back their own masks and reflect on their own complicated truths.
The enigmatic and dreamlike aesthetics woven into the series invite the audience to confront their innermost selves with a challenging touch of both honesty and humor. The images beckon the viewers to contemplate the question: Who am I, truly?
The Two Sides of the Truth is not just a personal journey; it resonates with broader themes in the realms of art and photography. In my work, I’m always attracted to the undisclosed, the hidden and the unspoken that lie beneath the surface and what that means on a broader level. This project challenges traditional boundaries in portraiture, blurring the line between fiction and “truth,” whatever that may be -- acknowledging that these opposing points are frequently a moving line for all of us.
