so many faces

When you’re walking amongst a mass of people you might pay attention to what people look like. A specific feature in their appearance might catch your eye: clothing, their stance, hairstyle...

The original photograph was chosen because of a personal interest to work on images of myself. It sounds self-centered and egoistic (at least for the society in which I have learn to live in), but I do like to bring a bit of strangeness into every situation. Being the odd amongst the evens has become more like a habit than an accident. Lord help me.
