“I looked at the relationship between the subject and photographer and decided to let photographers experience the position of the subject. I placed a sheet of glass between myself and the subject to symbolise the glass of the lense which is the only obstacle from actual content. I then asked each subject to close their eyes to ensure they were unaware when I was going to take the photograph therefore taking away any control they may have felt and inflicting isolation. It relates to my thoughts on how people often object to having their portrait taken and how they react when faced with the situation. I wanted my subjects to have no control over the image as I was aware that as photographer’s their awareness and involvement would be much more apparent.”
