This image represents the hidden layers of his personality. He wears a metaphorical mask of a happiness he lacks s he knows this is the bets chance of protecting his family and himself from despair. The level of his confidence and self worth is lowered when around his family as he feels even more vulnerable and this is when his facade fades but when with his colleagues he has to act strong, tough and in control to persuade them he is worthy of his status.
Remnants by Greg Sand is a series that i find quite creepy but at the same time moving. He weaves together 3 images of a person from different points in there life to create a portrait of a person who has passed on. When you look at the images you can see flashes of youth in parts of the portrait but in others u see a tired frail person. I think this idea is extremely strange but i do like it.
