window to the soul

Our face is one of the most expressive features of our body. We reveal both emotions and personality through our facial expressions, but when you can't see half of a face due to a mask, our facial canvas shrinks. How are we supposed to show others how we think or feel through our facial expressions if they can't even see it?

I wanted to demonstrate the emphasis on the "eyes" that has come to light during the COVID-19 pandemic. The phrase "the eyes are the window to the soul" has never been more applicable; our eyes are the only part of our facial expression that others are able to understand and, quite frankly, see at this time, so we must make it count! 

Huge shoutout to Kira Upin for doing the makeup for my equally talented models: Simi Bleznak, Aliya Kamran, Grace Jennings, and Marley Dooling.
