The Concept of Expression: Alex Maurice

DISCLAIMER: SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES WERE FOLLOWED CLOSELY AT THE TIME OF THIS PHOTOSHOOT WITH ALL THE SAFETY MEASURES IN PLACE TO PROTECT MYSELF AND ALEX.

The next subject I’ve photographed for this photography series is Alex Maurice.

As we continue to face the challenges that lie ahead with COVID-19, the wave of emotions we experience mentally as a result of the pandemic reflect how we’ve had to adapt to this new way of life we’re currently experiencing.

For Alex, the genuine emotions he exhibits in this photo-set struck a chord with me, because you can see the raw emotions in his facial expressions that determine how he genuinely feels.

What’s interesting about this photo-set is how Alex carried his genuine emotions as he wasn’t afraid to show what puts him in a good mood, including how he genuinely felt underneath it all.

What I think is powerful is that his emotions are visible and genuine because the pandemic has given all of us time to reflect on how we feel mentally now as opposed to life before the coronavirus.

It’s clear that with Alex exhibiting his genuine emotions, his emotions reflect the reality we are all currently facing.

I experimented with doing dutch angle photography during this photoshoot, which is the first time in a long while since I’ve produced photography work that used the dutch angle technique.

As cases of mental health are increasing every day, we all must reach out now more than ever to one another to see how everyone is doing, as mental health matters and should never go under the radar.

With the current situation of the government’s actions impacting how we live throughout everyday life, we all need to be there for one another and should never overlook mental health.

Mental health needs to be acknowledged, now, more than ever!

If this photo-set inspires you, please reach out to me.

I want you to feel comfortable opening up about your mental health, and please tell me how this pandemic has changed your way of life.

I’m so keen to hear from all of you!

🎂 HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALEX MAURICE! 🎂
