Hieroglyphics examines the variance in transcribed communications made by a range of ethnic groups. Since the early ages of humanity, people have sought out ways to articulate ideas through drawings and symbols. Ultimately, people have developed their distinct languages and assigned meaning to these symbols. Through text, people have passed down ways of communicating to their descendants. My portraits connect the people photographed to their heritage via their written language and physical expression of tradition. The text is directly written on the photographs to showcase their individuality with their unique handwriting.
