Concealing The Subject, Revealing The Art

The portraits that don’t reveal much about subjects and still manage to convey the message with beauty are the best. This photographer wanted to do the same by covering up her subjects under the layers of textile and fabric. You got to take a look at the pictures.

Prue Stent, a Melbourne based photographer created an eerie effect by concealing more than the revelation of subjects. This work has caught the attention of Gucci and that is the reason his Instagram followers increased by more than 200k.

She said, “I usually say I’m a photographer, I feel a bit funny saying I’m an artist. I shouldn’t, because I don’t actually make any money off commercial photography. But I still feel a bit self-conscious about it. I guess it’s the uncertainty of being an artist, that it doesn’t really feel like a legitimate job and you never know when you’re going to have to go and seek other work.”

When asked about her creative process, she said, “I’ve realized you can’t control everything and it’s important to keep your friends close and not become competitive. Surrounding yourself with artists is also important. Like if my Instagram got deleted, I’d be really annoyed, but it wouldn’t be the end of the world. The internet is such a funny place, I don’t want to feel too attached to it.”
