UK fashion photographer, Richard Burbridge’s masks are the epitome of  an unfound sort of character mask. From the perspective of mask work for actors it would be enlightening to see the type of characters created off of these, and the outcome of such I bet would be quite-never been seen before. They are not Comedia del Arte-like, but resemble the extreme abstract, dramatic nature of a world I have not yet met in my imagination. But given the opportunity I would willingly explore its life if  handed over one of these beauties.  Some are dead-pan more constricting over others. But I think that gives much subtext in harboring a certain underlying tension, which in essence is the part of  the life of  mask already provided for you, coming over you, as the wearer of the mask. But in character mask work the ongoing balance to attain is to allow for it to inform you the life it breathes, as much history as you would want to impose upon it in your own self exploration and discovery.
