Together in Youth and Light
An ongoing visual exploration of coming of age through portraiture and multiple exposure photography.
At the age when we are caught between who we were brought up to be and who we are destined to become, the subjects of this exploration in conceptual serial photography build a visual index for what is arguably the most trying period in a lifetime.
Through the process of exposing film multiple times, the portraits become fragmented and faint—sometimes rendering the initial subject unidentifiable. The resulting images are forming simulacra of the struggle to find identity amidst the pull of nature versus nurture.
This first installment of "Together in youth and light" is merely a beginning, as I intend to expand the collection and explore further the collective force of these images.
