Artist/ Photographer Ryan Francisco
Since last year, I have been concentrating on self-portraiture. My first series, Black Collection,
are self-portraits concentrating on form through the use of the body. My main focus is the trunk proportion of the body. This particular group of work resembles the Ancient Greek sculptures. The form and proportions of Greek statues are based on the relative measurements of an ideal human. Although some statues are missing certain parts of the body, the viewer could still see the continuation of what is missing. In this collection, the specific part of the body I want the viewer to focus on is visible while everything else disappears into the black space.
