Gao'An Faces is an experimental emotive portrait collage collaboration between motion artist Abram Hodgens and photographer Tim Franco.
My desire was to showcase the individual's personality and personal expression; for the actor to let loose and emote freely. The lighting that Tim devised captures a raw honesty and intimacy in the subject's faces. Their expressions invite the viewer to personal interpretation and reflection.
