Each day we desperately try to control our public face and show the world who we want them to see - perhaps rather than who we really are. With photography this stands even more so. We often see a camera and instantly smile or turn to show the 'better side'. This series attempts to remove this public face and capture a more natural portrait - one that is not often seen - as well as portraying some sort of truthful personality. Capturing the images in complete darkness deprives the subjects of knowing about the camera and seeing when an image will be taken, along with refusing them the opportunity to adopt their photographed persona.
