Some people change their look with the seasons. Others mourn a breakup with the requisite dramatic haircut, or celebrate one job (employment) with another (dye). Tracey Matthews takes the exercise to a whole new level, radically changing her hair and makeup on an almost daily basis. For one week this spring, Tracey and I met after she’d left work, to document the persona she’d created to present to the world that day.

I’ve talked a bit before about what it takes to present yourself in front of the camera and allow someone – a complete stranger – to take your portrait. Not very many people are as comfortable in this position as Tracey showed herself to be. To wit: On the last day of our collaboration, she showed up sans ‘do, without makeup, and as into the experience as she’d been the whole week.
Here is Tracey, au naturel, and as gorgeous as ever.
The look: Tracey, herself
