I also posted this one up, which shows me following the visual steriotype of the emo trend. The long fringe covering one eye, the black and white colouring, my eye still blue to make the image more intense between the picture and the onlooker. To make this image come across more as my personal "identity" I even added my nickname to the picture. The reaction I got to this was most amusing, people would call me all sorts of derogatory terms, best freinds suddenly turning on me for conforming to another image thinking I was no longer the Chris they know and love.
Does this mean that to really observe someones true personal identity its better to be blind and socially unaware? I think so.
Well I was going to do my essay based on "What creates a strong emotional response in portraiture art and why does society affiliate such power so critically?"
I was told that this was not direct enough to the subject of portraiture Art, yet not wanting to conform to the typical identity question id like to somehow stick to this route.
Take it easy folks
