Carol Rioux “Revealing a Portrait”

Carol Rioux:

“I chose to make a series of portraits of a single person.  I chose this project because I am very interested in everything that constitutes a person as it is important to me to capture who a person is not just a pretty picture.  I photographed parts of the subject, which progressively make up the most of the entire individual but never completely.  We made many images and it was difficult to limit the choices and parts to create a whole person.  Is it just parts of the body, personal interests or a combination of both?  I changed my choices a hundred times as she also loves reading, writing and hot chocolate.  Choosing an editing style was also difficult because finding a style that suited all the images was a challenge.  I feel like I captured a part of her being – attractive, edgy, confident, private, and capable…   We shot outdoors at different times over a couple day to maximize the effects of the sun.  I brought strobes and flashes but only ended up using the sun and reflectors.”

Anna Gunn “Dreams in a Suitcase”

Project 52 Member shares recent work.

Anna Gunn:

“Concept: a girl who carries her dreams in a suitcase. These dreams aren’t plans, or in any way constructive – they are merely a distraction from the beautiful, fleeting moments that life places in front of her. Yet they are so dominant over her, so heavy, that they spill out of the suitcase and intertwine with the real world… and still she carries them around.”

Catherine Vibert: Environmental Portraits

Project 52 Members share some of their recent project work over the next five posts.

Catherine Vibert:

“Environmental Portraits & Personal Branding. Through the course of the year of the Project 52, I found that my favorite subject to shoot is people. I especially love to photograph people doing what they love to do. All of the people in these photographs work for themselves, determine their own hours, their own schedules, and have built their worlds out of a passion for their work. I wanted to tell the story of what they do when that was possible. I went to each of their houses and photographed the story of their day. These images, combined with written stories, will be used on my blog to promote my marketing plan, which is to help people get beyond stock photography on their websites and social media. To help small businesses have beautiful images that tell their stories, so their customers can connect with the real human beings behind the brand.”
