"Lethal" Self Portrait Photograph By PhenomenaLewis (Lewis Derogene) made in 2020
Inner Dialogue series
38in x 21in
Limited Edition of 5
As many of us know, the eyes are the window to our soul and I believe that my soul is lethal, it's not something to be played with which is why I decided to make it off center compositionally.
Creating Lethal was my way of experimenting with little to no editing postproduction, raw photography. I photographed this sitting on my bed and placing my face super close to my lens. Mind you, my background is not in photography.
I wanted to see if I can still create a work of art that can be seen as commanding. So, my focus was on my eyes.
One of the limited-edition prints is part of Arthur Lewis and Hau Nguyen art collection.
