This is an excellent series. Lighting is wonderful and the emotional impact is very strong.
Amazing series. Voted!!!
Nial (why do I have to spell this wrong?), may I suggest you photograph yourself listening to "YEAH! (pretentious mix)" by LCD Soundsystem. Quite a different view of your emotions, I think.
I'll give you a dollar.. :B
Love all the pics!! Great b&w provoking emotions.
Intense yet mobile. Hard to go together, but you succeeded.
cool idea. well done.
Niall, you a great performer with allways great idea
One idea by day, you must creat the IaD (Idea By Day)
Vote for this technical and classy Portrait
Nice idea! May I suggest Ravel's Bolero?
Bohemian Rhapsody, Ivor? Picture me in the grips of a particulary vicious strain of tropical diarrhoea and you're pretty much there. Sorry, everybody for that enduring image...
Brilliant idea. there's more "tension" portrayed than i anticiapted - but stunning shots. a continuously looped mpeg of your head nodding'n'shaking gently might be an appropriate addendum to the gallery. Great Idea though - how about a series of you listening to those chopin preludes - a different facial expression for all 22 (or is it 23?)? maybe we could mail requests - such as "Nial, please photograph yourself listening to .............." and you come up with something suitable.. may i start with Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, he he he
Nice one, Niall. Excellent idea.
Stuning portrait,,great work, Niall
