“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”
William Shakespeare here talks about the players within us humans, However, this image is set to do the opposite. Capturing the humans behind the players, in a seemingly trivial yet compelling moments that exude duality during the transformation of an artist, physically and otherwise, into a character while they leave themself behind and step into their other self.
This image is part of a series called "Duality" which primarily showcases the intimate moments of an artist at a precise and precious period of time diving deep into the lesser-known world of transitioning of an artist.
