Anonymous portrait is a photograph that captures the whole burning light from the process of burning and disappearing the portrait photographs in a dark room. The original anonymous portraits for the work are ownerless portraits that the artist started to collect from vintage stores in NY. The abstract image created from this process makes these people ambiguous of the fact who or where or when they used to exist but also shows their dim figures on the prints in terms of a fainted memory of memory as if Alzheimer's dream does so.
