Another face In The Crowd
Where most photographic projects are linked by an underlying narrative, Another Face In The Crowd is more like a series of short films.
The images are crops of people who are not the subject of a photograph and are merely another face in the crowd. Often occupying a very small fraction of the frame, they are long forgotten bystanders, people unwontedly captured by the camera.
Each image, whilst retaining their unique ambiance, has been presented in a uniform, cinematic manner to provide the viewer with starting points from which to construct their own narratives and identities for the subjects.
To achieve this the images have been cropped to the same size with their facial features occupying similar areas of the frame at a similar size, the images have also been lightly pixellated. This pixellation is designed to link the images to the overarching themes of my work including the internet and privacy. Another Face In the Crowd furthers the concepts I have explored in past work by examining the archive, privacy and availability of images online.
