"Parents"

"Parents"

Judy Gelles. "Parents", 2006.

Description:
This image is from a series titled "Word Portraits" The text describes the individuals in the photograph, what is behind the facade. I wanted to reveal what is behind the typical smiling posed portrait, to look at the backstage rather than the frontstage. Light and shadow combine to create a three dimensional piece.

Medium:
