suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
lucas SIMÕES: I invited some intimate friends to make their portrait photographs while they tell a secret. My intention was not to listen to the secret, but to capture the images, so I asked them to choose a song for me to listen on my headphone while o took the photographs. After the shooting session I asked them if their secret has any color, each portrait carries the secrets colors.
I choose 10 portraits from this shooting session, cut and overlay them using acrylic boards, so create a secret portrait, like a topography, with depth and images.
