Photographer Erin Naifeh shot this self portrait series for us in today’s exclusive NAKID feature editorial titled, ‘Alone‘.
Erin tells us:
“I discover myself through my photography. Just myself, in a small room, with my camera. What an intimate, terrifying thing it is – being alone in front of a possibility. Where my thoughts are the loudest. My face, my body are just tools. I’m the object not the subject. Because, the real picture is something I can’t see. It’s something I feel.”
Erin Naifeh (they/them) is a Lebanese artist specializing in photography and directing based in Los Angeles, CA. Erin started their career in the movie industry as a camera assistant. They became a member of the ICG in 2012. Erin has worked on award winning features and tv shows as a 1st assistant camera for the past 10 years. After 10 years in the business, they began to pursue their beloved passion for for storytelling through photography and directing.
