Portraits

December 1, 2009

Paulo, August 2009

I’ve added a portraits section to my website. This is a small gallery of black & white portraits of friends and acquaintances, taken with an 8×10 view camera in my apartment. I wasn’t going to post these on my website. The portraits are very personal and I don’t feel like I have much of a discourse for talking about them. Basically I like looking at photos, of friends, the more detailed the better. There’s nothing better than an 8×10 contact print for detail, so the idea was to make simple portraits to satisfy this desire.

I’ve been posting these photos on my Facebook page and tagging the subjects. It’s been interesting to watch the accretion of comments and the dialogue that’s created between me, the subject and their [usually snickering] friends.
