Silhouette x Mask

Who doesn’t love silhouettes? I mean, it’s all up to the person’s imagination to create pictures with a story to it…deeper ones. This is my first post of silhouettes and my subject – a mask.

Last semester in our World Literature class we discussed about dissimulating. Octavio Paz stated in his essay which was translated by Lysander Kemp – Mexican Masks, “We dissimulate in order to deceive ourselves, and turn transparent and phantasmal…We change him from somebody into nobody, into nothingness. And this nothingness takes on its own individuality, with a recognizable face and figure, and suddenly becomes Nobody.”
