Selfhood by Vicky Martin

Vicky Martin is a fine art photographer based in the UK.

The series "Selfhood" was in part inspired by the proverb "The Eyes Are The Window To The Soul" and a desire to challenge the need to see the eyes within a portrait. The intention in each portrait is to create a character and a narrative and encourage an empathy without the visual stimulation of the eyes. I am intrigued by female characters in literary fiction and inspire to embody emotion in my images.
