BA (Hons) Photography

Jo Hallatt

My photographic work is compelled by my need to communicate. One main theme behind my work is the belief that we are nothing without the knowledge of how fast everything can fade, and the idea of time in photography. This collection of work is aimed at capturing the mysterious presence of a person, revealing their grace and fragile beauty through their magnetic gaze and intense lighting. In this collection, my work reflects simplicity, taking away any distractions, leaving the portrait with a sense of purity which suggests a profound intimacy between hiding and revealing. The focal point is the subject, letting the photography come secondary.

"We all have a sort of mask of expression. I try to take all these masks away. A kind of abandon... absence. It looks like an absence, but in fact when there is this emptiness I think the interior beauty comes out."
