Unmasking

We are living in a time when masks are part of the collective consciousness, where we are told masks can protect us against the unseen forces and can provide a barrier between us and the outer world. For me, the concept of masks brings me back to terrifying childhood memories when I watched Lon Chaney in the “unmasking scene” from the 1925 version of Phantom of the Opera.

What lies underneath the mask is a truth so terrible, those who gaze upon it are paralyzed with terror.
