"You know the interesting thing about humanity is that we are always looking for proof. But the question is what on earth would we do if we found it"
“Daguerreotypes” are composed photographs uniting sets, model and handmade dolls with photographic faces. The faces are from anonymous sources and given a new life when put into the portraits. The work is always based on the magical properties of the camera and its use as a tool throughout history to institutions as well as a spiritual tool that is a conduit of light capturing time. It is a physical document of our past and future faces our masks. “Daguerreotypes” is a testament also to the evolution of the photograph by extracting faces from old photographs into new works, and using all available facets of modern portraiture tools, and still sticking with the old fashion photo studio set up. An amalgamation of photographic techniques that synthesizes the evolution of portraiture.
