• Portraits (and Fear)

    This spring, I’m participating in a new project from Stuart Pilkington, in which I have to take a picture of someone I know. For some inspiration (and to remind myself that I can do this), I went back to my own Portrait Month in December 2007, when I gave myself the assignment of photographing a stranger every day. I did it because it terrified me, but within a week, any hesitation I had about approaching strangers and asking to take their pictures vanished. Looking back at these pictures makes me want to take more portraits in the months ahead.
