Caul. Work in progress
I’ve been influenced by Ernest Trova’s work since I had the honor of photographing most of his life’s work and getting to know him personally. Particularly his series ETC/Troubador and The Poets in the way he obscure the identity and abstracts the figure yet reveals hints of the personality behind the figure. This group is an extended portrait of a dancer where I’ve abstracted much of the details behind a veil reducing the figure to shapes and forms only occasionally allowing the hint of a body or face allowing the personality to come out through the gestures and contortions of her body.
