It is interesting to think of television sets watching people rather than people watching them; this change in perspective is exactly what the TV Portraits series captures. Considering that the average person spends about 3 to 4 hours in front of a television set, this series also portrays a languid culture that relies on outside entertainment to fill one's time rather than actively seeking something that could be more rewarding.

Shot by Tallinn, Estonia-based Andris Feldmanis, the TV Portraits series is not an intentional critique on mass media, as she makes sure to point out in the introductory to the series. The TV Portraits series is simply a reflection of what the TV sees. What is interesting to note is how expressionless the subjects often are.
