An Exploration of the Power Behind Emotion & Expression

“I am a murderer”

New Portrait Series! “I am a murderer”

Recently I have taken on a new photography project to help me capture some interesting emotions / expressions from my subjects. This project will be all about how different individuals convey or express the idea of “Just having killed someone”.

The result may be goofy, it may be serious, or it may be an award-winning performance from the individual. Either way, I simply want to capture that raw emotion which is elicited when the individual is asked to portray him or herself as having just killed someone.

It seems somewhat morbid, I think, however the few shots that I have taken have turned out great and I will continue to explore the responses and reactions of my subjects and share them with you all.

For starters, here are a couple of my favorites so far from the series. In time, I will continue to post more and more of this little experiment/project of mine. So please let me know what you think! 🙂
