I am fascinated by how people choose to express themselves. Each and every individual harbours a completely separate story borne from personality and experience intertwined with choices and chance occurances. These stories are private and internal but I want to capture the small (and sometimes larger than life!) ways others communicate their hidden personalities.
In a world struggling to author so many personal tales, I want to explore those private, internal thoughts we all have - but can never really fully express. My first consideration is to entice the viewer with the mysteries of what’s presented - to evoke a sense of wanting to know more about the internal life of the subject.
