Royalty is a three part series that contains three portraits created from three interviews. Dellanee, Chase, and Hannah are portraits that investigate the many faces identities have. In their interviews, I asked questions about their life and what they valued. Eventually, each model's interview would reveal many sides of themselves and I would choose two to highlight in their portrait. I acknowledge this piece shows more about me then my models because I made these creative choices, therefore, I look at these portraits as characters that were created from a combination of real world inspiration and my own interpretation. Each portrait is hung on rotating frames, so the viewer can rotate them and choose which face is on top.
