Continuum is a linguistic based Fine Art discipline series with medium concerns heavily influenced by the editorial portrait genre.  It is intended for Magazine publication.  The purpose of the series is to depict actors and models portraying ideas related to interpersonal relationships and sense of personal identity routed in the temporal and emotional concept of cause and effect.  Through this project I am exploring my own need to observe and understand human behavior specifically related to social identity, interpersonal relationships and times of distress.
 
Each photo contains at least one fully formed (solid)  depiction of a person,  this depiction is the keystone and should be the first place the viewer looks, it also provides the first clue as to what the emotional reality or subject of the photo truly is.   In addition to the keytstone depiction there are are transparent depicitions that represent temporal echoes that are  moments that happened before the key depections or in some cases after. 
 
The timeline in each photo can be a story told over a few minutes or a much longer period of time.

In this version he is more detached and ultimately alone, as he is crowded by the memory of her, and her attempts to connect with him
