MAP OF THE WORLD: A Year of Faces, Moods, and Triumphs
Photos and Text by Daniel Corey
I wanted to check in to let you know about a project that I have been working on over the past year titled Map of the World, a conceptual photography series that I created during quarantine. It’s a photographic exploration, of sorts, that takes place across the surface of my face. In all, I created over 300 images. And still going!
I have assembled a book of these photos and hope to publish soon, but for now, you can sneak a peek here. You can also follow my newest Instagram account, DangerKatt’s Map of the World. Previous to the new account, I also posted Map of the World photos at my Daniel Corey photography account once a day for 100 days, near the end of 2020/start of 2021.
Although my wife and I were alone and isolated during quarantine for most of 2020, I wanted to take photos to share with friends. I had nothing to work with but myself, so I got into the habit of taking pictures of my eyes. That eventually evolved into creating collages over my face that reflected my mood. The string of images that resulted basically plotted my journey through the pandemic.
Here is a collection of my Map of the World series for you to enjoy. I have expanded the concept to include photos of my friend’s faces, and I will be posting those at the new DangerKatt Map of the WorldInstagram soon, as well.
