BoysAndTheirFathers01 BoysAndTheirFathers02

This project compares the facial characteristics between Father and Son. These portraits were a demonstration of the physical similarities between one genetic relationship. It explores the subjects’ physical attributes, expressions, postures and moods. This project looks at a constant reminder of change, through time and in both growth and circumstance, forcing the viewer to make comparisons.
