Photography: No Face Photograph - A digital photograph manipulation designed in 2006. Self-portrait.
Description:  A girl wearing nothing but a bra on her upper body leans against a surface. A dark shadow lines one side of her body. She has no face, wears a cross necklace, and has shallow scratches on her upper chest. Butterflies casually rest on her stomach and shoulder.
Process:  A photo manipulation piece designed in October 2006. The model was posted against a wall in low light. The resulting photograph was heavily edited to create a surreal quality. Most particularly, the face of the model was erased. Stock photographs of butterflies were cut out and placed on the body.
Purpose:  This composition, a manipulation of digital photographs, was designed in order to have some completely fresh work for my months as the featured artist at Full Circle Gallery in Railroad Square.
Software & Tools:  Adobe Photoshop, Kodak Z740
Awards & Honors:  This piece was featured in a digital photography/art show at Full Circle Gallery (Tallahassee, FL) in October and November of 2006.
Color Scheme:  Muted colors: black, lavender, white, brown, tan, purple, gray.
