Michael Tittel: Behavior This week we are sharing work submitted to Lenscratch… It does not happen often, but every now and then I will catch someone sneaking a candid of me in public. It is the photographer in me that relates to the strides taken for the perfect image, and because of this I always pretend I cannot see them.

The disturbing quality of the images may not just be due to the fact that the folded faces appear distorted, disproportional and almost entirely stripped of identity.

Contemporary Photography I made this series with the desire to build a set of symbolic portraits inspired by my background of double cultures. I'm French with Middle Eastern origins. I worked by using the pictorial tradition of still lives. I chose to put forward characters where the nature and objects they carry come from different rites and customs.
