PORTRAITURE is a black & white large format series that uses the chiaroscuro style of lighting as a study between light and dark. It does this by utilizing darkness as an environment in order to reduce visual cues to a bare minimum and then submerge subjects within isolation. With environmental specificity removed, the subjects and their figures dominate the images, thus freeing them to convey their emotional states with the rawness that human existence requires.
