Mackenzie's interview centered around her relationships with friends, family, and church. She seemed pretty confident and content with the answers she provided, but it is hard for someone to express their true selves.

The middle pose was done by my model when I asked them to show the face that they show to strangers, the other two I posed based off of the interview. I achieved the affect by having a 10 second exposure in pure darkness with a flash bulb for each pose.

Based off the interview, I also included a digital collage background with varying transparencies (I can't seem to get away from typography in my work). These are hard to read and make out because identity is never easy to understand.
