This paper details the major issues and influences that are important to my photographic work. The first half of the paper discusses the historical and theoretical aspects that have influenced this current body of work by talking about the role of portraiture in the beginning of photography, the relationship that is formed between the photographer, the subject, and the viewer, and photography’s inherent relationship with death. The second half of the paper discusses the work itself in greater detail, and also my contemporary influences.
