You're Beautiful (2013)

HD video, 3min34sec

This work is social experiment in which I invite friends, acquaintances and strangers into a studio. They are under the assumption that I want to take a portrait photograph of them, but instead I am recording a video. As I pretend to try and find my frame and focus I tell each subject that I find them beautiful. The choice to silence the video is intended to add curiousity for the viewer on how the phrase was worded, and allows for more attention on the visual reaction of each sitter
