The story of Subject X.

The 2 minute piece that I have created uses various sound techniques to highlight the struggle and the various feelings captured in the 8-part photographic series.

“The Words from the Unknown” is a short piece featuring piano and voice-over as the main instruments, highlighting Subject X’s story.

When capturing his photos from my 8-part series I asked him to tell me his story. I asked him to write everything he feels and how he wished the world viewed him.

His story was my inspiration for my piece.

I have used my voice to highlight everything he felt. I speak on behalf of him as he still wants to remain unidentified.


When I began researching the best ways to present his idea. I came across various of visual poems that stood out to me. These included: ‘Learn to Love Yourself’, Embrace, Somewhere, EVERYBODY DIES, BUT NOT EVERYBODY LIVES.

I found that visual poetry uses the same techniques I have included in my piece, aspects like instruments accompanying the voiceover allows the story that is being told to be framed.

The piece reflects how standing up for what you believe in can be challenging but through all of these adversities we can still get back up again.
