A woman matches her wallpaper in this photo from Keyana Tahmaseb's "Human Canvas" series. "I wanted the subject to look more than trapped ... like she was trying to break out of that feeling," Tahmaseb said.
Tahmaseb used mud on her subject for this photo, entitled "Logs." "I took this image when I went on my winter break to my home state of Oregon," Tahmaseb said. "This image has to do with my feelings of being attached to my home state."
This photo, "Bed," was inspired by Irving Penn's 1949 photo "Girl in Bed," Tahmaseb said.
Tahmaseb used cake for this self-portrait on her 22nd birthday. "Every year I take a self-portrait on my birthday," she said, "and this particular year (2014), I wanted it to do with my project. ... I covered myself in frosting. This image also has to do with my fear of growing older."
"This is the routine of trying to fall asleep at night," Tahmaseb said. "That feeling of insomnia where you just can't get to bed, and you are just staring at the wall waiting impatiently for sleep to overcome you."
This photo is called "Self-Absorbed." "This is the routine of getting ready for the day/primping," Tahmaseb said.
