In this portrait series, I wanted to question our tendency to make assumptions based on appearances. The four models are dressed in black, faces covered with a niqab, and were asked to bring in and hold an object of personal sentiment or meaning. Devoid of any other visual information, the audience is forced to look beyond appearance and instead toward the object in their hands to wonder about their identity and personality.
