This was a school project, and the assignment was to create three posters convey different phobias. It's easy to fall into the trap of clichés and show scared faces or photograph a spider, but I tried to go away from that. It was a real challenge to convey these phobias without being so literal. However, I still wanted to create something dark.
These are a series of self portraits. I experimented with long exposures, and edited the images in photoshop. I painted over my face with a photoshop brush to mask my identity, allowing the viewer to focus on the phobia more. Phobias are an irrational fear, sometimes it can consume the life of a person. That is what I tried to convey.
