The photographic series It is, Still (2009) explores how much portraiture can communicate with the viewer about the interior emotional state of the subject. The images' silent choreography of subtle gestures and poses could be an attempt at interaction with the spectator, or instead part of an interior dialogue with the self. The expressions of the young people photographed are similarly ambiguous and unsettling; they can read as anguish or despair, but are also evocative of 18th century paintings of saints depicted in a state of grace, communicating with the divine.
