The masks we wear.

We all have them.  A set of masks we take out and put on when we simply can't deal with our life for the moment.  We use them to hide our true feelings, to cover our wounds, to escape the pain of something happening to us or around us.  The last time you tried to hide how you felt in front of someone - embarrassment, anger, shame - what did your mask look like?  Did wearing the mask work for the moment?

Your assignment:  Post a description or list of at least five "masks" you have worn in your life.  What were they worn for, what purpose did and do they serve?  Describe how you will capture at least three of them in a final photographic TRIPTYCH.  I will be looking at composition, creativity, understanding of the concept of personal masks, and technical ability with the final images.

Due date:  Posting list of 5 masks worn - Wednesday, November 5, 2014
