Every portrait holds a level of performance. When the subject is knowingly photographed they adjust and change for the gazing eyes of the camera. Within the staged environment of the studio, every aspect of control is removed from the sitter creating an uneasy atmosphere. With this series of Untitled portraits the subjects are positioned, uniformed and lastly subjected to an experience, which forces a surface of emotion. This illusion of emotion however conflicts with the reality of the images and the conventions of portraiture.
