From Plato's Cave In the series From Plato's Cave each of the portraits is lit using direct sunlight that penetrates our built environment. The harshness of this light can offer immense detail but also extreme contrast. Exploiting the limitation of photography to handle such lighting conditions, I'm allowing the shadows which are still rich in detail to our eyes, to fall to black when recorded in the camera. Featuring myself and those closely connected to me, the autobiographical narrative of this work investigates my own desire and search for truth. By hiding more than what I'm showing I am inviting projection, speculation and mystery.
