Persona by Jason Travis



When he began taking photographs in November 2007 for his Persona diptych series, Jason Travis set out to catch up with old friends, learn more about new friends, and, most significantly, to capture a portion of their lives in terms of what each individual considered essential enough to carry around with them everyday.

Viewers of the Persona diptychs take a voyeuristic delight in not only glimpsing the items usually tucked away in bags and pockets, but in identifying with strangers by relating to the tokens they carry with them. Alongside the meticulously arranged items that each person carries, Jason situates a portrait in which the subject always seems confident and at home, comfortable in their own skin. In these snapshots, each person appears as Jason sees them, which is always beautiful. Assembling the Persona diptychs has not only allowed Jason to combine his love of photography with his knowledge of the uniqueness and beauty in each of his subjects, but also has allowed him to share this knowledge with other.


Jason Travis kindly sent me these pictures to include on my blog.
More can be seen here.

During the Summer of 2010 Louise O'connor designed a Walkable 3.1km scale model 
of the universe. Installed between Kingsland Road and Stamford hill, the work
employed local shopkeepers at appropriate points on the route to act as guardians
