Vancouver-based photographer Dylan Hamm envisioned his Naked Faces series to physically capture the impact of being naked on someone’s face.
Dylan put the project together by putting out an open call for subjects in January this year, looking for people willing to be photographed while naked – albeit without any of the nudity being included in the final images.
He then photographed each of the subjects with their clothes on and again after they had stripped, but just from the neck up.
‘The purpose of this was to demonstrate the differing facial expressions between clothed and not, to physically capture evidence of the impact that something as simple as being naked can have on subtle facial expressions,’ he explains.
‘Men and women looking nervous, happier, silly all these emotions giving a fleeting glimpse into the inner workings of these subjects - via totally involuntary facial communication,’ Dylan writes.
In the end, Dylan explains that the results likely raise more questions as to the level of consciousness behind the changes or even as to how gender stereotypes may come into play.
