Truthness portrays real people, girls, and women of different ages and backgrounds. Subjects, who are not professional models, were placed in front of the lens undressed and without make-up or any directions. This state can be called emotional nudity. They were asked to not play any role. The way in which they expose themselves to the camera is what interests me. Portraiture is about the unspoken conversation or even monologue happening inside of the photographed person as well as towards the outside world.
-I feel like the whole world is looking at me. And through this photograph I'm looking back, confronting everybody who will see it.-
How much of the story can be seen by such a simple photograph? Is portrait revealing the truth about us? How much stays hidden behind the pose? How much is shown in the face, the body, and its slight gestures?
Flowers cut away from their natural setting display diversity, transience, and variety of character rather than their actual beauty. Hands speak with indefinite sign language which gives us hints to understand and identify with. Not only the kind of flower but most of all how it is treated by an anonymous hand that approaches the object with different emotions in each picture, with each character.
