Much like the rest of them, Reno was a college student, so a lot of what made up his life was school and process of moving on campus away from his home town. Balancing past and new relationships was a big part of his life as well as where life would take him in the near future.

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.
