‘A Concealing, A Revealing.’
by Gabriella Achadinha
‘A Concealing, A Revealing’ focuses on both the power of landscape / urbanscape in exposing societal context whilst also preserving the anonymity of individuals inhabiting these spaces.
Street photography has always been a preferred field of photography, the way in which one’s surroundings forces you to pay attention – the figures, environment, composition, shadows, movement.
Void of planned stylization, the there and now sets the scene. However, one issue would continually rise up and that would be the question of consent and privacy.
This series incorporates strokes to blur facial identity, allowing a faceless figure to occupy a space and represent an idea as a whole, precariously balancing on this debate.
These images were taken over three years in Porto, Los Angeles, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Seoul and Osaka.
Shot on a Nikon D810.
