Looking for Change
9 images Created 8 Mar 2017
Looking for Change is a portrait project in which I photograph people who ask me on the street for money. I pay $5 for five minutes of each person's modeling time. The images are meant to be exhibited as triptychs so that the viewer sees a diversity of personalities -- rather than a single attempt by an artist to sum up a human being. These are candid portraits except that I ask the subjects to close their eyes for one, so viewers can pay attention to the other details of the face. My goal is to invite viewers to reflect upon the faces and lives of people they might usually avoid.
