Trent Parke. "The Camera is God" series - I'm inspired here with Parke's image in the way he depicted a portrait of someone, it is very unsettling and mysterious. In my work, I would like to keep the actor or model mysterious to the audience as I would like to allow room for the viewers' imaginations to depict their own performance in their minds, I would like to create the platform for imagination like what Parke has done.
