We each have some sort of weakness that threatens to overtake us.
These personal demons vary from depression to addiction to insecurities, customizing themselves to wage war on our minds. At times it can feel like we become lost in their grasp.
These enemies are portrayed in this black-and-white photo project through the demonizing of hands. Black painted hands are used to portray this battle between the self and disorders, temptations, and downfalls as they attempt to take hold of the subject. The use of studio lights creates a dramatic mood that depicts the dark nature of these struggles. The backdrop, clothing, and (of course) the hands are all black to depict these inner demons.
