Facets by Tetyana Maniuk

Facets by Tetyana Maniuk

I asked the model to display various emotions during the exposure in an attempt to try and capture the multi-faceted nature of our personality; I used numerous colours to layer in even more complexity. I hope that while looking at this piece, the viewer thinks about the emotions they go through during their day. If their emotions were paused at one point in time, like in a photograph, would it seem like they are ‘healthy’? Just like personality, the prospect of being mentally healthy, or ill, is composed of many sides–many facets.

This piece has not undergone any digital-alterations.
