Entry Title: "Familiar Strangers"
Name: Amanda Dandeneau , United States
Category and Expertise: Portrait, Non-Professional
Entry Description: In these portraits, I am searching for traces of my own feelings and experiences, within my third party subjects. It is this act of exposing oneself and feeling exposed that most interests me. I am putting my subjects in the same state of vulnerability that I may feel at that very moment. There is an awkwardness that comes with the feeling of being revealed, either by being fully nude, partially, or just simply by having being the focus of the piece. I am searching to expose and understand the relationship between time, space, and subject.
