Callan Bradley Hales (left and right view), 2018

I’ve always been impressed by the passion and energy Callan emits when she performs. Having overlapping friendship circles, it was only a matter of time before our paths crossed. This stereoscopic portrait is part of my project, Vantages. Shooting from dual perspectives simultaneously, I do away with the careful manipulation of what might be deemed the most ‘flattering’ angle when translating reality into a single, flat plane of space. The stereoscopic pairs provide an honest, vulnerable portrayal of the subject, confronting the viewer with an element of voyeurism, witnessing something they may not be privy to.
