LEFT OR RIGHT

There are many aspects of life, where do you prefer to go? There are many kinds of emotions, how would you prefer to get along with yourself? There are a lot of ways for expressions, would you or not change the way of communicating because of different faces of others. For everyone, emotions carry the life, and facial expressions are the external expressions of emotions. In fact, emotion, the subjective cognitive experience of a person, is a state that is produced synthetically by a variety of feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Therefore, I think it could be very interesting to capture the subtle facial expressions in the portrait photography, record its changes and compare their differences.

This project compares two extreme emotions, despair and joy. Both models are my work partners. By zooming in the camera, I focus on the changes of facial features, especially the eyes and mouth. The different sides of the model and different viewing positions affect our interpretation of the expression. About composition of this picture, I use a strong contrast and neat symmetry to contrast these two emotions. Moreover, in the middle, there is the integration of these two kinds of emotional, which are highlighted.

I hope this project will remind the reader that, in two ways to face with life and people, what did you do in your life? Readers should feel how it looks like in different emotions and think about which side you prefer. Left? Or, just right?
