A portrait! What could be more simple and more complex, more obvious and more profound. - Charles Baudelaire 1859

A portrait is a story. A story of who we were in that moment, of who we are now, of who we were before.

In this portrait project I took picture of three different kinds of people: strangers, people I know intimately, and myself. Each set tells a story of the subject and I. A story of vulnerability and strength. Trust and circumspection.

When you look at these photos I implore you to think about your strangers, loved ones, and self. What story do you tell?

My Strangers

Those I Know

My Self
