Abstract [en]

Honest Portraits are a series of photographic performance in which I investigate what is an honest photographic portrait. The works questions

the truth behind a photographic portrait and invites the audience to reimagine how they relate, view and experience photographic portraits.

The portrait exists in two strands, the experience of observing the creation of the portraits and the remnants of the performances. These remnants are what I consider honest portraits. I find it important to separate these two strands when discussing them. We often consider that looking at a photograph is to be informed about what had occurred. To witness an event and to view back the event in the case of a photograph does not generate a liner outcome.
