Two-Sided is a series of work that examines the entangled relationship between two characters. The artist and model are photographed together to communicate a surreal notion of duplicity and codependency. Experimental self-portraiture is used to explore a hidden identity within the self. This photographic series investigates memory and story telling through both personal and conceptual narrative. Two-Sided is about the sharing of secrets and dreams and the physical representation of trust that is gained from disclosure. All images from Two- Sided were photographed digitally and in the northern region of Texas.
