Thank you Allison. I’m hopeful that I’m photographing not only a person, but something of their character as well.
Winnipeg Street: Georgina
Sometimes a persons story is written on their face, or in their eyes. She didn’t want to talk too much and was a bit unsure about getting her photo taken, though she did allow me to take just one. I’ve seen her before, and although she did not want to share her story with me in depth, I get the feeling that her life hasn’t always been happy. Not every portrait is easy to take but having the opportunity to do so makes this project and this type of photography all the more important to me. It’s not just about taking pictures of people.
Mike, something tells me it’s not just their image you are capturing but their spirit. Some are broken some are mended and all are beautiful.
