Photography art based on human behaviour and the mind. 

Hey, I’m Allan Thompson, I create photography art based on human behaviour and the mind. I’ve recently started work on a new project, the project is titled Coup De Tête.The Coup De Tête series (French for headshot) is a project based on human behaviour and the mind, a project where I explore and try to understand human beings.
Daily we face many problems, some small some big, we fight these internal battles that sometimes no-one ever sees, maybe thats a good thing? Or so we think; be it mental health, depression or are we just struggling with our identity and who we are or maybe something that we’ve experienced?Sometimes, it feels a lot easier and safer to stay quiet and suffer in silence.Sometimes, we have those thoughts, those thoughts that we shouldn’t have.

Sometimes, we allow others to dive right on in, into our heads, we allow their opinions, their negativity to affect us rendering us silent and in tears.Sometimes, others judge us by our appearance without getting to know us, they only see what they “choose” to see without getting to know who we really are and if they just stopped for a second and dug a little deeper, got to know us, we’d drop our defences and let them in and they would see that we’re full of love and inside we’re just a scared little child screaming out for help, just like them.Sometimes, we need to open up our eyes, open up our mind and let that creativity shine. Illuminate and show the world just how amazing we are, show the world who we really are and not this fake self-image that we’ve created for ourselves.These images were created to visually represent who we are as human beings and the internal and external battles we face.

Which image best represents you?
