SOUL STARING -LITERALLY 

words by Adri De La Cruz

 

I’ve never been more excited about a feature. Each of the specific images is like a window to the soul of the artist. It was a theme that quite frankly I was afraid to share because I didn’t think many would embrace, but it turns out I was wrong. Image after image, the thoughts were similar, “this was tough, but I am so thankful for it”. It seems that for most of us eye contact is one of the most difficult things to do. Personally, I have to work on this as it intimidates and set me back when someone expects me to hold their gaze during a conversation, in self-portraits although it’s not a conversation in person. It most certainly feels incredibly intimate to look at one’s self. On top of those feelings of I’m not good enough. I am so grateful for all of the vulnerability and heart reflected through each image.

The month inspiration came from Danielle Serres, and she had this to say :

“I find the emotion to play a large part in imagery and the gaze can really help evoke certain feelings in viewers. Direct eye contact while sometimes difficult, is a great way to make viewers feel something when looking at a portrait. When I first started with self-portraits I would tend to shy away from direct eye contact but as I became more comfortable in front of the camera I play with it more often and really love the results.”
