Now-a-days selfies are an everyday thing. We have the luxury to retake over and over to get that one selfie perfect. With taking that selfie we have the impulse of sharing ourselves with the world to show what we look like. But are we really showing the truth of our appearance?
24 Seconds of Truth is a series of traditional portraits capturing the truth of the person. By having a person sit in front of an 11x14 view camera, no blinking or movement, for a full 24 seconds or more I saw the person in full. Their demeanor comes forth so we can see them for who they are. Each portrait is a 11x14 paper negative scan and inverted into a positive digitally. The negatives were used to make digital negatives to produce platinum palladium prints (shown towards the end of the gallery).
