Being & Envirnoment
The environment we grow up and live in often defines who we are. Whether we are conditioned into it or consciously choose it, it gives meaning to our individual character. Our surroundings play an important role in how we're being perceived.
Focusing on the person, as in a closer portrait, creates a more intimate, personal interpretation of who someone might be. In order to gain access, especially with strangers, it is essential to create a level of trust and understanding in a limited amount of time.
Observing parts of my environment, the very element that often tends to fade into the backdrop of our everyday life, triggers an introspective process and illuminates the settings and conditions I am often subconsciously inspired by.
