I am excited to be opening a show of a group of portraits I shot over 3 months on a street corner. Alberta Street, here in Portland, has a street fair on the last Thursday of every month. The scene there is so uniquely Portland. People dress up in costumes, eat fire, play music, sell their art and basically have a street party every month. I set up a 9 ft seamless backdrop on a street corner and created a little studio for myself among the chaos, the wind and the masses. People were excited to pose. I found if I just told people to stand on a spot and be themselves, without directing them in any other way, amazing insight happened.
If you are in town come to the show. Opening June 5th 7-9p @ Newspace Center for Photography.
