Images without a face present a particular compositional challenge. Devoid of this compelling human attribute, the eye is without key direction and we have less reference to the thoughts of the subject. Without a hint of eyes, nose, or mouth, he figure becomes somewhat an anonymous nude. Faceless means expressionless, meaning an enigmatic and cryptic image. Although, in the act of hiding the face, something is communicated: a tucked head in body language or hair thrown up in enthusiasm. The subject is involved in the environment, not acknowledging the fourth wall.
