This project is inspired by the phrase “Subtract to Add.” Each subject has been photographed while existing in, responding to, or interacting with some type of element in the environment. The subjects are then removed from the environment an‍‍‍d placed on a white background. By subtracting the environment around the subject, each photograph seeks to stimulate the viewer's attention and add focus to details that would otherwise go unnoticed.
