The Vexation series

The idea behind this project is to capture humans in a still frame, yet their head is blurred and out of focus, seemingly moving.  My intention is to capture the essence of a human without the recognizable characteristics of their face, in order to portray a frustrated or worried state of mind, because I feel as though no matter where or who we are, we as people are always frustrated or worried or annoyed with something that is occurring in our lives.  I intentionally put this series in black and white because color evokes emotion, and I didn’t want those who view this series to be distracted by the emotions triggered by the color of the photographs, I wanted them to focus on the emotions that are triggered by the composition of each photograph.
