Aren't we all guilty of this fake mask that we have to wear all because of the situation dictates it to be so, tell me what you think.

Funny, me and some friends were talking about this just last night..
Yes, everyone wears masks at some point...but sometimes, sadly, it is required.
Like for job interviews. (just had one of those..ugh)

You have a great eye, and such wonderful concepts! I think you are one of my new favorite photographers, sir!

I absolutely love the concept of this. This is all too true. We live by societal standards where true emotions are to be hidden, disguised by the false comfort of a smile. It is about time...we put away the front and reveal what's really underneath.

And, btw, I was blown away by your gallery - it was visually as well as mentally entertaining.

very nice work
I feel like he is going to a party because of the cuffs and that the smiling faces is part of the outfit
he has to choose which one, which size, color, shape, etc. to make a specific impression upon people.
very very interesting piece
you have such a creative mind and i'm so glad to see a photography gallery that means something where the photographer is trying to say something instead of just take a pretty picture!

Now that's an awesome concept to be proud of, I saw this in someones favourites yesterday but missed the comment. Glad it got featured so I have my opportunity. Now that I'm here, I'm lost for words, it's generally a well composed photo to be proud of. Score!

This is a great concept. Is this model you or another deviant?
Also, are those bottom halves taken from his/your face too?

Its my good Jap friend "Yu" and hahah .. yeah the bottom half of the face belongs to another friend "Harry" . I don't know why , i guess i'm just shy to appear in my photos. Kudos to them they look great.
