My photographic collection, Anonymous, is an excerpt of many collections to be included in my debut book, also called Anonymous. It is a coffee table book full of my personal photographs, illustrations and graphics. The book explores lost identities through portraiture by pushing the boundaries of anonymity in portraiture as a genre. It raises the question, how far can you remove a person’s identity in their own portrait? The book is anticipated to be published in late 2014.
