A portrait photography project
Persona is a portrait photography project that aims to capture the true essence of the subjects through personal connection and conversation. The photographer gets to know each participant by talking to them, learning about their lives, personalities, and interests. By establishing this rapport and understanding, the portraits are able to reflect each person’s unique character and spirit.
Each portrait tells a story of who the subject is – their experiences, values, quirks, and emotions. These are candid snapshots of beautiful souls, preserved through the medium of photography. More than just pictures, these portraits represent memory capsules of relationships and moments in time between the photographer and participants. They serve as reminders of how dynamic, complex, and extraordinary each life is. Persona is a celebration of human individuality and a tribute to meaningful connections we make along the way.
The overall theme of authenticity and insight into the human personality is captured through a collaborative process between the photographer and participants. By opening up to one another, they are able to create portraits that are not just skin-deep but reveal the beautiful and poignant depth of human persona.
